Using the power of two computers

Hi René.

My wife did not let me choose a new computer for her. Wanted to get her something like the one I have - iMac (Retina 5K, 27 inch, late 2014) or newer. But she insisted on getting an iMac 21,5-inch, late 2015. Trying to cut cost. After a few months she realises that it is quite slow. It takes 4 sec to open a finder window.

To my question. Since I am out of our joint office a lot. Can her computer take advantage of my computers idle power?
