Default Solar Panels to power Dell Mini 10 - 10-15-2009, 06:46 PM

I am wanting to find out how much power my Dell Mini 10 uses so I can find out what solar panels I would need to power it. I am wanting to set up my Mini for remote monitoring and need to have a power source. Anyone have any idea about the power consumption on these mini 10's?

Figure on 30W plugged in and at high performance settings. Perhaps 15-20 at lower settings.

My Mini 9 takes about 10W AC. 14W under the heaviest use. About 7-8W when the screen is off. And if I recall right, when charging the battery, power consumption can get as high as 30W. I expect the Mini 10's power consumption is similar.
