I built a Duron 1.1ghz base unit for around 200 quid - and that was ages ago. Probably cheaper now. If you want windows, it's hardly going to break the bank, whatever option you choose.

Personally, the best option as I see it wold to have RISC OS 5 running more of the ARM hardware that's around - new NetBook please - and VRPC available for Linux and Mac OS X. That's the ultimate flexible scenario.

I'm not sure if Castle have any plans for getting RISC OS 5 onto other complex ARM devices - 'embedded RISC OS' could mean just about anything. Actually, RISC OS 5 for NetBook would be a genuine way to get new users 'Hey, turn your big PDA into a proper desktop-like device'.
