Looking for a laptop for a wall mount

From: William Wade 
------------------------------------------------------
So I am looking into building a wall mount Linux box for picture
frame/DVD player.  Perhaps with Mythbuntu or something like that.
However I am having trouble finding a laptop cheap enough (i.e. broken
enough) for the job.

Anyone out there with a cheap laptop that fits these criteria?
Perhaps so ideas on where to look besides eBay and Craig's List?

Must have:
Working, relatively bright LCD (This is of course the only thing that
is seen so it is really the important part)
DVD drive
Power cord
Memory
Working sound, although perhaps not speakers
Enough power to smoothly run as a Myth box
Owner willing to ship to Ohio

Need not have:
Looks
Battery
Screen hinges
Keyboard
HDD


Anyone have any experience building one of these?  Mostly thinking
about software as there are a lot of tutorials out there for it, but
not much in the way of software.

I really like the Velocity Micro Cruz line, if you're looking for general Android tablets. BTW, I just bought a Velocity Micro Cruz Reader (R101), and it's not bad. It's purposed as an e-reader that happens to run Android. It's not as fully functional as most tablets out there, but it'll work very well for me. I want something to read Kindle books on, as well as get started with Android app development. http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=3DUTF8&tag=3Dmozilla-20&index=3Dblended&link

I would love it to be a touch screen, but I think I am going to have to go with a popout trackpad... At least that is my current idea. That and a little web interface for my wife's new Android phone.
