I just bought a couple of Advantech AIMB-214E mini-ITX 1.86 GHz motherboards from a local surplus store for $25 ea (NIB). They have 6 genuine RS-232 ports (two can be configured for RS-422/485). Alas, the store don't do mail order and are currently out of stock (but the boards are around $50 on Ebay). And suitable cases/power supples look like at least $50. They can be run off of 12V at 2A from an on-board barrel connector.
