I'm not sure about the "mac" requirement, but I've had really
good success with this build-to-suit PC/Windows vendor:
You can pick EXACTLY what hardware you want, they'll put it together for you within 2 days, test it out and ship it.? You can order things with or without an OS, and whatever mix of components you want, even non-working systems, e.g., no hard disk.
Most systems come with a 3-year warranty, and I can say I DID have one good experience with them replacing a power supply that conked out.
Also, I really like the level of detail in their website for every component as you build your machine -- they have good copies of each vendor's specs for every item.

hi, i am trying to build my own mac mini size PC that runs well with linux, and i'd like any advice/feedback anyone can provide on that.
basically i want to know brands/models of motherboards, chassis, and other components that you think will work well with linux with these goals in mind:
thats it!? i welcome all suggestions, ideas, feedback, war stories, whatever!
- must be super small, mac mini size mobo & chassis.
- plan to use ubuntu but open to other distros.
- suggestions w/ & w/o hard drives ok (these are to be clients in a LAN which can run LTSP if needed).
- must be pretty inexpensive (i can get small form factor PCs for US$150 which meet all my needs already but i prefer even smaller solution even if it costs a bit more).
- should have built in NIC, video, sound, usb ports.
- clients will run openoffice, firefox, perhaps a few other non taxing programs.
thanx in advance.
