UPS for Mac Mini
I have the Mac Mini noted in my sig.
I am looking for a suitable UPS, and am after any suggestions?
Will just have the Mac Mini, and maybe an external HDD connected in the future.
I also like to stay power efficient (reduces those damn bills) - does a UPS consume much extra power? I guess its just topping up what the mac mini uses, so power consumption should be minimal?
See my YouTube Channel for reviews & tech tips!

APC has a handy tool that allows you pick a UPS based on the devices you'll be using it with.

Most power comes back on within 1 minute, but we had a few that lasted longer than 5. If you are just looking for something that will shutdown safely when power goes out, then maybe a 1000VA would be sufficient and save you about 60-80 bucks and cut your runtime down to 15-17 minutes.
