There's also these: http://mini-itx.com/store/?c=39

I've not worked with that one in particular, but I have with a larger  
one. They're really easy to work with as they're effectively just  
generic x86 boards. Some of the larger ones are fanless.

I've been wanting to put together an effrects box with one, but just  
don't have the time.
