There are a few of here Jordi for whom "minicomputers" is to computers
what minigun is to gun. :)

I have tried Pd with many kinds of mini-itx and small form
factor board out there, and just about anything you buy
these days above 1.6GHz with integrated GPU runs excellently
with Pd. 

As Ubuntu continues to get heavier I heartily recommend
you look at stock Debian Squeeze with a lite window manager
if you want to use the machine for artistic work, rather than
as a general purpose desktop. 

The better question to ask is do people know of any hardware
configurations to avoid.

For example: I had a tough time getting a new I7 with sandybridge
graphics adapter to work without having to upgrade kernel.
