    Default Cortex PC recommendations ..

    our 24/7 PC (*) is running at something like 90% CPU capacity - that's 5%, and after subtracting 5% for the overhead of Windows Task Manager ...

    advice was, when we bought it, that something quite modest would be more than enough - so we bought something that offered low 24/7 power consumption ...

    'though we should, perhaps, have known better - people always told us nothing much was required for simple word processing & spread-sheeting, and our experience has been always the opposite ...

    plus, when the necessary UPS is added to the equation, its power consumption hardly matters ...

    anyway ... since we doubt it can sustain such a loading for ever, maybe it's time to update !

    meaning - does anyone have, please, any current recommendations ?

    (*) - 1GHz VIA EPIA EK10000 with 1GB RAM ...
