Meaning, that if the UPS is new, charged, rated for 800VA, and you
connect a laptop, it might last for an hour :-)

a laptop have a built in UPS that can last until 9hour, depending of the
laptop.

it's the main laptop advantage, apart size :-)

Not when they die. It is maybe cheaper to use an UPS than replace the
laptop battery ;-)

I have a home server that is in fact a good but old laptop, without
battery, connected to the same ups as the router, tv recorder, and phone.

Of course, maybe it would be better to use dc-dc converters for each of
those gadgets, plus a 12-24 volt battery on float charger, plus a solar
panel. That would be a dream... dunno where to start that /project/.
