Anyone got experience with XBMC and similar linux media centre tools running on tablet or netbook class hardware? I 
like the idea of using a couple of el cheapo Android tablets with decent external speakers as music/video/TV/phone 
terminals, getting content from a NAS box and perhaps phone from a * server.

Roku etc. are far, far too expensive for what they do.

I run a couple of xbmc instances using atom based nvidia ION systems. There are a couple of netbook|top class systems that sport these chipsets for a decent price but I don't know that they are as cheap as a roku can be had for.
