FWIW, and at the risk of incurring the wrath of Mr. Leighton et. al. there is a thing called the "TrimSlice" which is shipping, at least to developers. Its a Tegra2 box with some nice specs.
Here is some data about disk reads:
Timing cached reads: 476 MB in 2.00 seconds = 237.74 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 66 MB in 3.03 seconds = 21.80 MB/sec
