I want to setup a Windows Home Server in my house, however I want to have the hardware that consumes the least amount of energy (having a pc on all day long can get expensive!), and also with most flexibility regarding location.
I live in Mexico and unfortunately I havent seen any of the prebuilt small WHS machines, so I thought maybe a netbook could do. I know it doesnt need much CPU power or RAM, but I dont know if a netbooks way too weak for it (im thinking a netbook with 1gb of ram or something around that).
For the storage I would add external usb hardrives that I already own.
Would this setup work?
If not, do you think it is possible to built a ultrasmall, wireless enable pc that spends as much electricity as small laptop/netbook?
