the main reason I thought of this was I really need a more capable FE in
the other room and I was looking at this to run as a webserver anyway so I
was thinking duel purposing this to run a VM and a FE (partime) currently
(Old IBM laptop) doesn't get alot of use as it currently doesn't support HD
content or video containers with processing overheard (aka mkv)
Thanks for the advice.
