On the subject of power consumption, doesn't someone need to mention that the screen and hard disk of an ARM-based solution would consume a fair amount of power, too? Nobody is doubting that ARM-based CPUs are very suitable for low power consumption applications (see [link] for some nice kit), but add a screen and other components and I'd imagine that the benefits start to fade away.
