    i dont think that would work too well for HD content. With the coreavc decoder, you could probably manage 720p files, but 1080p would be out the window.
    I'm not even sure about that, because coreAVC is designed to be multithreaded - the P4's i tested on had Hyperthreading, so they got a fair boost out of it.

    1) BBC Micro (6502 Proc @ 2 Mhz)
    2) Acorn Archimedes A3010 Arm 250 CPU (Yes it had an ARM chip running at a monstrous 12MHZ, was a RISC chip too)
    3) Gateway 2000 (!) P5-90 with Socket 5 motherboard (no L2 cache etc) :( First PC! Eventually phased out with 200Mhz Overdrive Chip and a few memory upgrades.
    4) PII 266 64MB Ram...
    5) P4 1.8GHz 512MB Ram...
    6) P4 3.4 Ghz... 1Gb Ram
    7) Current system QX6850 @ 3.0 Ghz.
    8) Cell Microprocessor + 3.2 Ghz (PS 3 :D:D)

    School

    1) Various BBC Micro (6502) / Acorn Archimedes computers that the school had at the time
    (Arm chips a plenty!)

    4) Pentium 200

    University

    1) Pentium 2 300/333/400/450 etc up to P3 933 Mhz

    Macs

    Brother has a heavily upgraded SE/30... couldnt tell you what the exact spec is but is definately not standard.
    Various Macintosh from ii/iix all the way up to Powermac G5 (school/uni etc)
