Tech Question, Home Server 

Hey, I'm thinking of buying a ~$200 little fanless PC to run as an anyways on home server. Anything in particular I should know about specs or requirements?

I'm pretty much looking for something that can host a Mastodon / Minecraft / etc server so I can keep them running without letting my PC go 24/7.


@Wayril Take a look on Idle-Power of the CPU. I've got an old Opteron which has enough power for several VMs but it also burns a lot of energy even if there's nothing to do.


@nasi power costs of running a dedicated system aren't much less than renting server space.

@Wayril That's not what I was trying to say. I just want you to take a look on idle power of the system and not only max power.
