An NSLU2 doesn't have a monitor, unless you use some VGA-out USB stick.
But check here for details:
According to that though, NSLU2+disk uses 13.86W, my laptop uses ~19W,
of course all depending on load. The laptop though is quite a bit more
powerful than an NSLU2, but also again a lot more expensive ;)
