  Lots (OK, some) of the high-end 286 or 386 PCs at the time had
ethernet. My RT has ethernet, but in its original configuration it was
definitely a "power-sucker". Ditching ESDI in favor of IDE helped that
a lot. My MicroVAX II, introduced in '85 I think and still sold in '86,
has ethernet, but it is definitely a power-devourer.
