    On the other hand, that would also compete with a bunch of other tiny computers, like the RPi, the faster ARM SoCs, ALIX3 (AMD Geode LX 800MHz, I believe), and even mITX (a 35W TDP dualcore i3 would roundly wipe the floor with any atom, idle around 1W, and manage fine with passive cooling).

    A blade + single-chassis solution would probably be really solid and have good fast connectivity, though. Hmm.

      I wouldn't consider the RPi or one of the ALIX boards for a home-server due to the lack of SATA ports (a problem with most of the current SoCs, I would think). An i3 mITX would be fine and of course faster than an Atom, but always to use x86 is a bit boring, I would go for an ARM, a MIPS or maybe even a PowerPC CPU just for the fun of it.
