I've always liked the Fit-PC:

http://www.fit-pc.com

I bought two of the first gen version, one of which is my router. It's
not available anymore but I assume the 2nd gen version is just as
good, plus wifi (only one ethernet port now, though). It is very low
power (less than 10W according to my calculations on the first gen)
and small.
