If I were to take this option, what benefits would I notice? For example,
would I be able to run a single program off of all the machines
simultaneously, thus increasing its speed? Or would the best I could do
be to run separate programs on separate machines?

Unfortunately, the memory is a bit low. The best machine of the bunch
will be somewhat decent, however. Anyway, this option sounds interesting.
To do this, would I have to specify which machine to run each program on
every time I run a program? That could get a little tedious.
