How about a Raspberry Pi?

Install Xbian, a XMBC media player based Linux os ( and you've got everything you need.

Cheap too!

Comment Pi's great (Score 5, Insightful) 74

I got mine yesterday (after my co-workers tricked me into thinking I'd not get it)..

It's slow like the Engadget guy said.. not up to HD media playback in a fast manner, though that should change once the software's optimised.

However, it's crazy low power, size and features mean I can make my own mini-nas/access point/controller for my caravan which runs on solar.

So many different ways to apply the Pi, as long as your aren't expecting it to be a fast desktop PC!
