ok, if i understood what you want correctly, you want a device that will 
doenload your torrents for you, and then simply use the files from 
ubuntu?? or do you want the device to run ubuntu?

The easiest way about it, is to have some device connected to the 
network, running a service that will download torrents (torrentflux?), 
and share the download directory on the network, then from your ubuntu 
machine mount that share, and you can access the files downloaded while 
you pc is off! :) for that device you can use the nslu2 or any other 
Network Access Storage, I had a freecom fsg-3, whicch worked nice after 
some hacking. or you can build your own with an old computer lying around.

I don't know much about all this deiffernt architechtures and how ubuntu 
supports them, but the nslu2 and the freecom fsg are ARM, i dont know 
how friendly uibuntu is with running on it. debian has been ported and 
works on both.

hope this helps
