That is of course for the same performance.
Another benefit would be more memory.
Yeah, and I could probably afford the up front investment. But, in reality, I would get the new machine and then still run all these old ones, too. Most be an addiction... (I actually have several more old machines waiting for a chance to help.)

Edit: It's also an opportunity to play. One of the machines is running from an 8GB micro SDHC card. I also have a Raspberry Pi assigning some of the work.
