A blogger had a great suggestion regarding Dell's online store: to list the processor wattage next to the available processors we offer on our Dell™PowerEdge™ M-Series blade servers. View the original blog post:

We value the direct relationships we have with our customers, and we listen. In that spirit, our online team is working on including processor wattage information in our online store. In the meantime, we've provided a processor wattage quick reference below.

Also, we offer an online power and thermal planning tool that provides detailed power draw information on all our PowerEdge servers; the Data Center Capacity planner is available here: www.dell.com/calc
