There are vendors of dinky little PCs for tight, hot spots. I looked at them for an application but it didn't work out but I was impressed by the selection. Here's a link to one that had a pretty broad selection of options.

Thanks to everyone for the input.
But what is cost effective? We have been using a laptop intermittently,
but it generates too much heat to run it all day in our small, poorly vented
receiving area with no AC. There is also too little space for a recycled
full-size PC, though I could probably screw a laptop to the wall behind the
monitor. The laptop we are currently using occasionally for this job is
always in the way. The keyboard is on a pullout tray along with a trackball
(takes less space than a mouse.)
I'm not so much looking for a pre-packaged solution as for a tiny little
computer with some standard connectors on it and which I can load with Linux
if it isn't already there.
