That was my point.  The Raspberry or ShivaPlug or whatever fills one niche, this fills another.  High performance in a small package with miniscule power requirements might be ideal for some...

Any application that requires always on and decent to high end CPU, even if only occassionally, but low power useage, this little box seems to be a great option.
