[GLLUG] Low power (and cheap) servers in a highish ambient temperature

I need some hardware (not particularly powerful) capable of running a
fairly mainstream Linux distro.

The catch is that it needs to run in a fairly warm (up to 45degC) and
dusty (so fans are a bad idea) environment.

I tried running a pair of raspberries with heatsinks but they started
exhibiting strange behavior (low power TX on the NIC, hanging etc.
etc.) so I'm kind of ruling them out.

Does anyone know of anything similar (ARM or x86) that might be up to the job?
