"The Ottawa-based start-up hopes to capitalize on a trend toward server size-reduction with its NetWinder 3100. Weighing about 2 pounds, the server is designed to fit into dense racks designed to hold several servers at once."

"Rebel asserts that its server consumes less than one-fourth the power of comparable servers based on chips from Intel or Advanced Micro Devices--a crucial factor in the overall size and cost of the computer. The NetWinder 3100 consumes 14 watts of power, compared with 60 watts by a comparable server using a chip from Intel, according to Rebel."
