"The new system will take much less power and generate less heat and
free up space."

Ok, the space reduction is obvious.  Anyone know why the power/heat is
going down?  Removing video cards / hard drives?  Do the video cards
really use a significant amount of power if they aren't being used?  Or,
is there something fundamentally different about the Xserve?
