Well, sort of. There ARE computers that have power supplies capable of this, but nothing you'll be buying from Dell or HP for home use. Power supplies like this are usually reserved for servers and high end workstations.

I have a 530W redundant power supply in both my server and workstation, for instance. It provides complete sine wave "clean" power as well as redundancy if it fails. The only thing it doesn't have is a battery. That's what a UPS is for.

HTH,

Chris

Mine? Nope. There are methods of quieting them down. Aside from the power supply, the workstation has 10 80mm fans in it. Gotta cool those HDD's!
