Hi. My opinion is that nvidia's ION platform with vdpau and XBMC gives the best 
result. The atom's cpu load is <10% playing 1080p h264 so forget the 3GHz core2 
unless you want to play Flash HD movies or other non-vdpau formats.
It's not very cheap yet but you can build a fanless one for €200. For example a
