I like using Atom-based "net-top" style boxes. The N550 CPU is quite
decent, if not an extreme power-miser relative to other suggestions
made here. 

I have some by Zotac; Shuttle and many others make similar, all
basically stamped from a common mould.  I like that they can be found
readily and replaced quickly should the need arise, compared to a more
specialty device.
