If I only need ip base, but full 15.4W on all 48 ports... and if I only need 10/100 ports, not gig, which switch would be the minimum to consider. Price matters.

I would go for the Cisco Catalyst 3560-48PS switch. Here is the data sheet for the 3560 series switches.

"the 48-port PoE configurations can deliver the necessary power to support 24 ports at 15.4W, 48 ports at 7.7W, or any combination in between."
