OLPC purchased 30  machines for OLPCorps with the following specs from  
Logic Supply. These units are supporting anywhere between 30-100 XOs.  
So far the only bug report we have heard was the corrupted mnesia  

SolidLogic Fanless Mini-ITX System
   -Mainboard: EPIA LN10000EG 1 GHz and HP7
   -Case: Serener GS-L02 Fanless Mini-ITX Case - Black
   -Memory: 1GB DDR2 667 RAM
   -HDD Standard: 160GB 3.5" Seagate SATA 7200rpm
   -Power Switch: None - Unit will be set to Auto-Power-On
