Why not use a Mac Mini? Runs Linux just fine (I used one for about 6 months running Debian).
I bought a Mini-ITX motherboard with the same specs as a Mac Mini for cheap. Still trying to get it to boot properly off of USB though (it refuses sometimes) which was my plan to get it to run off of Flash device. If you want to build your own PC from parts you could probably find a mini-ITX case and mobo and run whatever linux you like off of it.
