I was thinking portability for the same reason as yourself, in that if I
want to take a part of my cloud (controller and 1 node) out and about for a
demo or to demonstrate at a client site.  I was thinking of the aspire revo
with a little server box the size of a NAS (eg. Thecus 3200) as they can all
run headless.

It would be interesting to test if my asus eeepc 900 would run as a
controller (am using it to test meercat and lubuntu currently), if the
aspire revo is not overly tasked as a controller, then it should be possible
on the eeepc 900.
