Doesn't meet all your needs, but you can find old netbooks for $200 or
less. I've taken a couple from the laptop case and put it in a box. It
accepts a laptop drive (I'm using a 90G SSD). You can add a separate NIC
via USB. I'm running RedHat on them at the moment, but I assume CentOS
would work just as well.
