For windows I suggest you Check EPD free, which shouldn't be too hard to install.

I got this Plug-In-The-Wall-Computer called a pogoplug which runs some sort of linux that allows me to access my HD at home trough the internet (never use it). What if this could act as a Azure server? I read that I can port Arch Linux on it.. would that allow me to do the trick?

The problem might be the computing power, But I don't see any reason for the IPython notebook not to work on Arch.

You can try nbcloud, 
Notebook on EC2, If you never had account there is something like 1Year free or smith like that.
