hmm. The DEC7000, which is the VAX7000's AXP counterpart (just a CPU swap
made the upgrade) has this to say from the Alpha AXP systems handbook:

'maximum usable power' 1500W (what this means??)
'heat dissipation, system cabinet
 -fully configured 5200W
 -minimum configuration 1000W'

i assume the 1500W figure is for power available to devices like disks ,etc
in the cabinet.. 1kw is a nice round number, so mybe it uses less, but
still, i dunno if a 48VDC 10A supply would cut it.. still, thats the 
specs for the alpha variety, anybody have a late edition VAX handbook?
