    Guys I would like to ask about the macbook pro late 2008

    I am willing to own a network local sharing server in my University so, students can upload their multimedia files and movies etc to my mac using the local network of the university connection.
    student will use torrents apps to download files from the server so they log to the website which I will create and they download the tracking file then they open it and use it to download the file from the server via torrent apps.

    My macbook pro is 2.4 with 4g ram and with 380G HDD

    I own a new macbook pro late 2009 so I will not use the old one and I will keep it online 24/7

    But I don't know if I can use it or not for this purpose

    Hope you please answer bcz I am waiting for the confirm from u so I can submit my name to the chef of the university

    Technically you can, though I don't know if using a laptop in this case is the best approach but technically there's nothing stopping you from doing this.

    thanks for the reply.


    Will am going to have any issues with the downloading speed? because what I know downloading and uploading speed depends on the computer performance right?
