power draw from PCs (amps?)

[ Edited ]

I have a bunch of Compaq 6005 Pro small form factor PCs that I want to plug in somewhere, but I don't know what the power requirements will be. I guess I need to know the maximum amperage of each PC.
Can anyone help me figure this out so that I don't blow a fuse plugging too much into one power strip?

the PSU is specified as 240W
at 220V that's a little above 1A
at 110V about 2A.

But then again this is the maximum, the system will ever use.
If not fully populated power consumption will be much less.
Only when all the systems are connected to a common fuse and all powered up at the same time, you need to worry about this maximum.
