Maybe I should have stated "to potentially come up with a free dedicated ripping pc"?
The only real time that counts, is my time used to initiate up the rips, and then let the pc go at it. The rest is simply electrical cost.
Now if you are a computer literate guy, don't you have people trying to give you older computers? I sure do, and anything with DDR3 and issues, I take and
combine with another suitable freebie computer. And then a small older ssd drive gets tossed in, as I upgrade my desktop, or htpc. I've even scored a couple of 4K rip
capable optical drives, out of free pcs lately, and some 320-500G drives that are useful to back up small cheap boot ssds, and are easy to resell. Older pc cases with
multiple 5.25" bays are useful, for their potential to host multiple optical drives for a ripping pc.
All of which makes me wonder just what is the minimum suitable specs a pc needs, to rip a Bluray? Are "retired" pcs now up to being dedicated ripping multiple movies
at one time?
