Just came across a nice hardware platform that can easily be stripped of its stock software, replaced with a fairly vanilla Arch Linux install.

CPU/Memory: Marvell 88F6192 chip with ARM V5 CPU 800Mhz and 128MB RAM
Bonus: Two (2) USB 3.0 ports, SD card reader

Perfect for a compact, quiet file server.

All for under $28!

Notes on replacing the stock OS:

I've got one of these running right now, working extremely well! Even the USB3 works with one of my external USB3 drives that's powered off of the bus. Highly recommended if you just want a quiet little file server.
