I just set up an APC Smart-UPS SC1500. Tells me I have 63 minutes of  
battery at 100% charge. USB plug & play was nice. Just install the  
software, configure and go. I got it for around $350. I can also get  
a bunch of dumb (cheap) UPS's for my other boxes and use this one to  
shut down other systems when it detects the power is out after X  
minutes. It's also nice to get emails telling me when the battery  
needs to be replaced or that the power went out, came back on, etc.  
Great investment for peace of mind.

Are you interviewing in RI? I live relatively close to APC's HQ.
