For real server purposes we'd need to add RAID1 (another HDD), but that 
is not really a problem (IDE is cheap).
1.2GHz? seems slow (even as dual). Not sure if that would match with our
We can use it for two purposes (perhaps other things as well):
 - For the new It uses Plone and it seems to require a
   lot of server capacity (meaning, 3 servers is preferred). It would
