Cory, my understanding from Kim's original post was that the box would be
used for playback of a multi-track ardour session while baudline visuals
project.  I'd say that's entirely possible with that horsepower.  But you've
proven me wrong on issues many times before... The specs just seem
relatively similar to my old Compaq Presario I use as my primary workstation
- slightly lower clock speed and smaller harddrive but that's about it.
