It would be a great deal to have available a machine that is MaidSafe ready (capable) and if it's an effective farming machine, I'd expect many would appreciate that being available. And certainly provide a benchmark for future hardware considerations.
And I recall how miners in the POW arena make purchase of many graphics cards at many hundreds in price points for that POW mining. I estimate there ought to be a marketplace for the sure settings of running safe_vaults. And especially at the onset of test_farming, and farming itself.
Perhaps even launch on kickstarter and introduce people to cryptographic integrity through the safe network while buying a machine expanding the horizons and outreach. With instructions that to obtain safecoin you can buy this machine and keep it running eventually there will be safecoin, and instruction on how to use it to store data.
Devs would have access to safecoin from the machine that they can be easily use as part of developing or likewise participate in the network; and even yet so, incorporate safecoin to their professional work, fitting safe network and its data storage capabilities with great security into the use cases of everyday software engineering work. some thoughts..
