Target Hardware

Small, cheap boxes. Ok if e.g. box is missing (can be added later), but not if design goals are clearly different (e.g. price tag above $200).

ARM based devices

Some work may have been done during an ARM Sprint.

Cortex A8, A9, A15 devices (armhf)

ARMv4t, ARMv5 and ARMv6 devices (armel)

x86 based devices

MIPS based devices

See libreplanet processor review for list of processors, pricing (where found), features including Treacherous-capability, FSF Hardware Endorsement Criteria capability etc.

Some benchmark comparison between different processor famillies, which might help in deciding which platform would best fit the requirements can be found here

Hardware list from the PlugApps project here. Good overview of differences in SheevaPlug-class devices.
