I'd agree. Our school has 15 workstations. The server has two SATA drives
(one for backup) 6gb of RAM and a four core AMD CPU (I think we get far
better bang for our buck with AMD). The whole server machine cost about
$350. The kids bang on it with OpenOffice and Firefox all day long and
I have never heard a complaint about performance.
