Ran across a friend that gave this to me. I was just going to wipe the drive and see if maybe anyone else wanted it. Then I started thinking (add smoke cloud here).... If I could take the load off my cheaper laptop by tossing a good power supply, a good graphics card, and maybe a SSD later on would it actually handle Hitfilm 4 Pro and run at least as it does on my laptop if not better. ( http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04008973 ) which only upgrade was to 8 gig of ram. And it runs smooth till it gets to particle simulations then it gets a bit iffy.
So do ya think it is worth it to dedicate the freebie desktop to such a task of Hitfilm and things like Blender? Or should I dump dirt inside it and use it as a flower pot? :P
