While the proposed hardware will demonstrate relative performance between apps, i think a reasonable point is made that some more current hardware be used.  More current hardware would allow reporting of benchmarks such a N images/second to be relevant to a larger audience.   

Please consider continuing the setup with the hardware in place.   Mike and I will work to get a newer server for testing.
