Beware of Atom based devices...  Many of the Atom chips have a problem where a couple of the critical clock output signals have a design problem and they start failing after around 18 months.  This problem just became public in the last month or so when Cisco warned of impending failures in a lot their routers.

 I haven't found any low cost ones.
