Do you mean a dedicated computer used as a Bittorent server?

I assume that goes back to this thread. http://computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=94371

But it's just a dedicated system to download/upload torrents so you don't have to use your main system.

Only you can answer that question I'm afraid! To some people that use bittorrent constantly 24/7, yes - to others (such as me) they'd be next to useless.
