- Aug 11 3:35 PMHi Peter,
The SheevaPlug is more powerful (1GHz ARM9) and in the same price range ($99) as the NSLU2, but it has only one USB.
Comes with Ubuntu 9.04 pre-installed in the 512MB NAND flash and has 512MB DDR2 to play.
Take a look:
I got mine a few months ago and I'm happy with it.

if you want a device with more power (CPU, memory, network) and support
by Debian, then I can recommend a NAS device by QNAP. I bought a TS-109
(at a local store in Europe) a while ago and run Angstrom on it, but
Debian is well-supported for this type of devices, see
http://www.cyrius com/debian/ .
The TS-109/119 can be used with one internal + one external drive, the
TS-209/219 is the version with two internal drives. Putting the HDs to
sleep works fine for me. The power consumption is also ok, I guess - did
not measure mine, but data sheet of TS-109 says 6.6 W in sleep mode.
The devices are a bit more expensive than a Slug though.
The above link also lists similar devices by other manufacturers but I
do not have any personal experience with them.
