for a home automation project I'm search for a small and cheap computer which is capable of running a small webservice. It should have the following features:

  • Linux enabled (Debian, OpenWRT, ...)
  • small form factor (ca. 4"x4" resp. 10cm x 10cm or below)
  • chassis
  • fanless
  • low power (<5W)
  • USB port(s)
  • ethernet port
  • opt. WiFi
  • opt. Z-Wave or ZigBee
  • min. 128MB RAM
  • min. 256MB non volatile storage (NAND Flash, SD Card slot, ...)
  • internal or external power supply
  • available in EU, <100 EUR

There are plenty projects which need a small Linux box thus hopefully somebody has already found and used such an embedded computer.
