Set them up as a cluster server and connect it to the internet for the S.E.T.I. project to use, they are always happy if they get a bit of extra power.
And who know you might be the next to discover some signal from outer space...

I like the idea, but all of the how-to articles I've found only do it on a PC and one or two on Linux. Several forums say it's not possible on a Mac unless it has the Intel processor. Any help or guidance appreciated.
