Something for only downloading torrents?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need a computer or device that I could download torrents, and I could leave overnight on without it taking too much electricity. My actual rig costs money in my electric money if I run it overnight for torrent downloads (Even if I turn off monitors, etc). I'd prefer not spending over 200$.

TORRENTS IS BAD! Usally. I thought the torrents were cool at first, than I thought "This is why that suckish DRM stuff started, why would I make it worse"? Anyways, you might be using it for legal stuff, but a whole thing just for torrents?! I would buy a used lappy, a Dell Latitude D620 would do.
