The last time anyone asked this question there seemed to be a
consensus that it was hard to beat the HP Microserver (amd64) on
price. I don't know how much power it consumes though, mine has an
extra network card so it wouldn't be totally accurate if I were to try
to measure it.

I also have a SheevaPlug and it works well for me, versions with a
SATA port seem to be more expensive.
