It looks a bit like an Elonex Prosentia BookPC.  On board Ethernet is
standard, you can downspec it to Celeron 566, delete the monitor, add an
internal modem and the standard 64MB DRAM/10GB IDE HDD would probably be
adequate for your application.

Three year warranty, £568 +VAT. and follow the links through the showroom.


p.s. I've never used one, I have considered it for my living room, but my
partner would prefer a Mac cube.  Does anyone know if FreeBSD runs on the
Apple G4 platform?
