That is an option (and cheaper).

This is also an option.

The cheaper one means they'd all share the same machine. It'd still be
an improvement over what they'd have otherwise, but it wouldn't be as
ideal as giving each their own machine.

But in any case, I think this is really most valuable for Tor Browser
GSOC students. Other GSOC students (working on other projects)
probably don't need a machine at all (or could get similar efficiency
improvements with a less powerful (and cheaper) machine. And we may
not even have a TB GSOC student next year, it all depends.
