I dunno how many are so equipped.  My computer at home is so equipped, and 
my computer at work is also .. but I don't run my APRS station on either  of 
those computers. I run a dedicated computer that runs *only* APRS. I don't 
see the need to buy another UPS that would only last a few min anyway. If I 
want to run APRS using the least amount of electricity / for the longest 
time I'd run PocketAPRS on my Palm.
