And what type of cable is used for the 2 computers to co-operate with each other?

as far as i've read you can use LAN cables to communicate

That's quite slow compared to PCI Express speeds. I think you'd do much better by upgrading your desktop. Besides, the notebook ain't going to help you much, the Atom is pretty slow...

You really should take a look at the IncrediBuild user manual, and the rest of the website that I linked to earlier.

The beauty of distributed computing is taking advantage of multiple processors to spread out the workload. I don't know why you are talking about the PCIExpress bus, since it has nothing to do with what the OP was looking for. Sharing CPUs has nothing to do with the PCIExpress bus.

@noelian13 - No need to get upset or anything. I was just saying that if you wanted increased performance you should look towards upgrading your computer because sharing resources with the notebook wouldn't help much due to its poor for video editing.

@kegobeer - I mention PCI because its speeds are much faster than using a LAN cable to share resources. For example, adding a graphics card to be used via USB, it won't be very good compared to connecting it to a PCI port because USB is much slower than PCI. Ditto that to Ethernet.

Ok, now I think I understand how it works. One second though, does it also work with the GPU or only CPU? (Video encoding for example)

Edit: So the Grid computing is only good for compiling, encoding, or decoding things right? Isn't it slow to first send the project via LAN to clients, have them do the job, then send it back?

its okay :P i am earning money for it though (looking for a way to destroy my pc so that my parents will buy me another one )

so far it uses all the resources available in your pc except gpu i guess

How much cash do you have? If you can get around 600-700 bucks, we can make you a great desktop.

Don't, they are really overpriced. Are you going to get a laptop or desktop though? And whats your budget?
