Why would you need to keep it ALL running? Granted, there's the power protection advantage to having all the gear on UPS, but if you just need to keep the computer running long enough to shut it down gracefully, you don't need to plug everything into the UPS, or you could use much lower spec UPS units and/or surge protectors for power conditioning.

Or the short version: who cares whether the router's up when the computer's going down? ;-)

BTW, some of the UPS units come with software that monitors the UPS (via serial or USB connection) and can shut down the computer automatically for you after the power's been off for the interval you specify. Dunno if that works with Macs or not.
