Interesting. Thanks Q5. I don't have a Pi yet - I was going to get one last year then I saw all the power problems people were having so I shelved the idea. It does look like a suitable piece of hardware for this sort of low power application though, assuming I can get one of the later versions.

Have you measured the current draw while your Pi is running the server image?


Power to the Pi works over USB. Power specs are 300 mA for the Model A, and 700 mA for the Model B. The Model B maxes out at 1A, so you're looking at a peak draw of 5w.

Thanks. I've now updated my first post to reflect Raspberry Model B as my current hware preference. (open to change of course, but we'll see what comes on the market...)

Just throwing another idea into the mix for longer term consideration - I wonder if an ARM based tablet might one day be possible to use as a portable webserver?

Ted Dog - how capable is that Mele you mentioned? Does it have both wired and wireless network capability?

Are there any reasons why an ARM based server would be a bad solution?

Added Odroid to my first post as another hardware possibility:
