Got a Mac mini 3 (2009) here. If it's really cheap and you want the
"intelligent typewritter" side, go for it, otherwise, don't. It'll run
Linux just fine, though wifi might be fiddly, depending on the chipset
they used. As for sound... Well, my personal experience with the Mini is
that it's difficult to get to work properly and the sound is crap
anyway. And your braille display will eat up the only USB port, but you
mentioned that already. Expect to need some sighted help for the rEFIt
part, and it breaks sometimes, at least did for me till I learned to
leave well enough alone. Still might be good though, just depends how
cheap and what your expectations are.
