So is it stupid to run a MP without one? I have read every now and then people saying that its a mistake to run your MP without one, and my question is why? I have my computers plugged into a decent/good surge protector and very rarely have my power go out (ie. never had a brown out, <1 a year I would say on average) The chances that the power goes out when I am working on something extremely important are very low, and even if it does I have auto save saving quite often (in FCP) so I wouldn't likely loose very much time even then. So am I missing something? I can't imagine, if I were convinced to buy one, buying one that costs much more than 100USD. thanks guys!
