<-- I've had reasonable success with the HP T5710's; I use the models 
with 1.2GHz proc' and 256MB of RAM.  If you can get the models with 4GB 
of DOM that would be best.  I have modified several to use a 4GB 
micro-drive, which work fine ...... UNTIL, the micro-drives crap out!

So, I'd think twice before putting them up at a remote site that you 
cannot easily access.

My 2 cents.
