Power consumption for UPS capacity estimation for an Elitebook 2570P, i7, w/ 16GB RAM and 250 GB SSD

Elitebook 2570P with i7 and 16GB RAM and 250GB SSD
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I need a really good UPS because of frequent power outages in Houston area during storms. Ideally I want to power my Elitebook,  my Netgear cable modem (XFINITY-Comcast) and my Linksys WiFi router to continue operations for at least 30 minutes (typical outage period). 

Any suggestions on power consumption requirements or real-world UPS experience with hardware model recommendations? 

Thanks,

Mike

Question is how long a run time are you looking for. Personally the only two brands that I would consider based on experience and quality of support would be APC or Eaton. APS has a great sizing app on their website that allows you to input your equipment, tell it how long you want to run and it will provide options for models that wil meet your needs.
