It's main use will be:
- Torrents and other downloads
- Storing files (everything, from jpgs to big ISOs) from multiple Ubuntu, Android and Windows systems (more than 7)
- Streaming 1080p video files (around 2100+ Kbps bitrate) to those devices and a SmartTV
Nothing too crazy, but there's the hardware: the laptop is an old Inspiron 6400 with a Core Duo (not 2, the original) with 1GB of RAM and a 965 chipset. It already runs Ubuntu and other apps decently, but its not fast.
I have a N router but the laptop has a G card. I guess I could change it, or in any case wire it to the router, although that could be difficult because the router is in a place with little space.
Besides that I plan to connect 2 1TB 2.5" USB HDDs to it for storage, but I'm not sure if it could power a third one, would welcome some input on this.
So, can it handle this?
