Atom 330 dual core, Drop in a 2GB DDR2 stick for $30, and pick a case:

I dig this one myself:
I could only see purchasing an E2 if I was REALLY dead set on a 100x100mm VESA mount...
Aleutia E2: low power to the people

Yabbut...for some of us, "no moving parts" is a very nice feature. Intel isn't anywhere close to that--the CPU requires a fan, and I'm guessing the ATX power supply does, too. (The "NAS-style case" you point at appears to have two case fans in the front.) At only 30+W, it's not bad (and the features are indeed nice), but it's still four times as much power as the E2.

I mean, I know it's small and VESA mountable, but... yeesh.

OK, adding up all the parts and labor for this alternative, I get over $300, and that doesn't count the warranty and presumably uses a lot more electricity.
