there are lots of options available for working with some small displays.

based on what you want to accomplish i would recommend something like this:


this is low power, easily interfaced, has touch screen and fits well 
with the size of the minnowmax.

in addition i would recommend not using a sata hard drive and instead 
recommend using a mSATA SSD. this is going to be a lot more power 
efficient and give you better performance.

while a usb sound card could be used, we do have an analog audio lure in 
the works that would be a good solution as well...
