How do you measure the amount of power drawn by a computer? Excluding the shutdown everything else in the house method

I was going to use a clamp on multi-meter, but I have heard that they make power meters specially designed for measuring power draw. I asked four different Radio Shacks and they have no idea what I am talking about.

I have read about 'Kill a Watt' - ~$30, http://www.spytown.com/kilwatwatkil.html

Are these devices accurate?
