If you are finding yourself downloading and/or sharing more and more files using torrents (legally!), chances are you will be using a torrent client on a machine such as a Laptop or Desktop PC. As convenient as this may be it can often be expensive to leave these devices on for long periods of time due to power consumption and they can also use a lot of bandwidth. The Raspberry Pi is very power efficient in comparison and therefore a perfect option.
- Raspberry Pi running either Raspbian or RaspBMC
- Remote access to PI using SSH
- Storage Device (In this example I am using a USB Memory Stick)
