So maybe we could consider a standard for "home computer" that it "runs
on 110V with less than X amount of watts"?

Except that for the greater part of the world it would be 220 Volts...

Ah, OK then. Maybe just wattage/amperage? A machine like the one I had would melt light home wiring at 80 amps, so not a home machine. Maybe we could say if it uses more juice than your electric stove it's not a "home computer"? I like simple. :) Ric
