    I have a HP Pavillion desktop sitting around collecting dust and nothing to do with it. I am currently using a powerbook and iMac to do my everyday work so I am up for anything!

    ...or, as I've suggested earlier when this topic has come up, use this method and see if you have any really stupid criminals in your neighborhood... :D

    If you still have the receipt give it to GoodWill and get the tax write off.
    Remember to do a low level reformat of your harddrive first.

    Can be a decent file-sharing server, if you have some bandwidth but don't want to eat up cycles on your Macs 24/7... that's what i intend to do with my most recent extra PC.
