Anything similar to the Raspberry Pi that is more suitable for HTPC replacement?
details
I want to replace my current HTPC with a more power friendly alternative but was looking to keep it small and wallet friendly. The Raspberry Pi is getting support for Ubuntu and XBMC developers are woking on making it work but the low RAM is an issue since my HTPC acts a media hub with other software running. Are there other devices out there comparable to the Pi in the terms of cost and footprint but offer a little more in the area of RAM.
