That's a nice small platform, but you might also want to have a look at
systems based on VIA processors (C3, C7, or the new Nano), that have
embedded HW crypto acceleration.
I'm not sure about prices, but I think it could be in the same range as
I've been working on a 400MHz StrongARM XScale PXA255 CPU, 16MB of
Flash storage, and 64MB of RAM, and 2 x 100Mbps Ethernet ports.
I had 20 mbps onion routing (2 decryption + 1 encryption) performance
from a 1Ghz C3. It could almost keep up with a P4 on that.
I know this is not the current speed in Tor ORs, still it might be
interesting for the long term.
