I gave about about 172 US$ for my SheevaPlug. (bough it from http://newit.co.uk/)
A used NSLU2 goes around 60US$.
So yes. It's about three times more expensive (old slug vs new plug), however, the hardware is also at least three times more powerfull etc.
I could foresee that the SheevaPlug would replace my 2 SLUGs, but that is, of course, just my point of view :)
