Is there a reason you're not looking at ARM stuff? There are several
nifty devices out there -- I'm going to be moving most of my stuff
over to these things:
 The big drawback on these guys is the lack of video; my next desktop
will be an asus eeebox, which are available with ATI 3450 graphics
chips. I know the R500 and newer ones have only emergent support in
the FOSS world; however, ATI has opened up some drivers and is
promising to open them all.

I've run far and wide in search of open, low-power systems. I thought
I hit pay dirt with the OLPC XO-1, but the wifi requires a binary
blob. I think a handful of plugtop computers, an asus eeebox with
Slackware on it, and my nokia n810 will suffice.
