Well, I don't think these differences count that much. There are laptop CPUs that run at 667MHz FSB or more, like Intel's Cre Duo, and there are also 7200rpm 2.5" hard drives. And I am pretty convinced that a (rather) powerful laptop can act as a server unless it's really hammered and there's high demand.

Well, it depends oh what's it's tasks are exactly ... It's still daft though ...
£ for £, a laptop is much more expensive to get the same level of performance ...

Especially if you want to play games on it as well.

There's a lot of laptops with dead screens around though - if you're only using it as a server you might not mind that, whereas most people won't want it so you'll probably get it cheap/free.

That's a good point. Didn't think of it up to now... You only would need to get the OS install done somehow, and then you can use ssh or Remote Desktop or whatever you like.

Yes, but a server usually doesn't need one once the setup is done.

Well I have ran 6 terminal services at the same time, it sounded like a 737 on takeoff but it works.
