    I'd look for one with name-brand graphics (nvidia, ati) and look for one that had a non-universal docking station available. That way, you can mod the power switch for remote on/off without having to disassemble, and I don't know of any case where it isn't possible to do custom resolutions on an ATI or Nvidia card (it's more work on some ATI boards, but doable). Other than that, you should be good with your criteria, imho.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    Just get a low voltage mobile processor computer you won't have to worry about overheating and it doesn't need a lot of voltage. Good luck I'm thinking of a laptop install myself. I currently have a mac mini that I take in and out. Good luck

    Can you confirm that it supports 800x480 on the VGA output?
    I have a chance buy a used one.

    Thanks!

    I actually can't because it is a work computer.

    The only way that I know of to find out is if you install Powerstrip (if it's compatible with the IBM graphics adapter)
