A hackerspace is just a place. You don't need "good" computers to do
good work. It's just a nice to have.
I would like to provide better compute power for NB, but there are a few issues:
* It's expensive to setup and maintain good compute power
* Any real compute power should be maintained off-site in a colo anyway.
* I don't think having a lot of compute power would help anyone, and
it would go unused.
As it is, we're really only using 20% of a single core on the crappy
old dual core system.
