600 watt (or 600VA) does not strike me as an unduely large load rating
for a UPS. My smallest UPS has 800 VA. What did you have in mind
Arjen?  Also, 20 minutes runtime is not too much to ask. It's true
that the system can shut down faster than that, but a human might
appreciate a chance to save his work.
