Hello. I am searching for a low power home server. The primary function on this machine will be to host files, and secondary functions will be to run an ftp server and possibly a few other things.

Currently I have an old HP Pavilion DV1040 laptop that has a P-M 1.6ghz processor it in. Which machine would use the least amount of power? The reason I ask is because this machine will be running 24/7 and since its not saving the world or running Thermo Nuclear War simulations it does not need to draw enormous amounts of power all day.

BTW for those of you who dont know, the Asus Eee Box is this:
