We use AudioVault, which runs on most computers, but we use Dell OptiPlex and Precision computers which we acquire from our local recycler at considerable savings. You need to ask the automation vendor about their hardware expectations for the next few years. Our most recent answer was along the lines of Intel Xeon or "i"-series generation 4 or newer, 8 GB RAM or better, and a video card with at least 1 GB of RAM. It's nice with Axia, you're not sizing for an audio card, so you can choose small form factor computers.
