Computer

Hey, lj-brain-
I'm thinking about buying an additional small computer for installation work.
After maaybe being responsible for blowing my logic board via working on my Arduino, I'd like to use a computer that I'm less invested in for that kind of work than my every-day laptop. (If I could go back in time, I probably wouldn't have sold my old laptop, but, oh well.)

It'd also be useful to have a spare system that I could leave at a gallery for long stretches of time.

Any suggestions for systems or places to shop? I'd want it to be small/portable (but not necessarily a laptop), stable, relatively cheap, and be able to run Max 5. So, it'd need to have A/V capability, but it wouldn't need to be the super coolest fastest thing ever. Hopefully something around or under $500?
I think I'd rather not use PCs again, but, it'd also be nice to have something that wouldn't need to be sent to Cupertino to repair in case I blow something up again. :)

I'm thinking an older mac mini or some kind of netbook might be good options.
