I'd heartily recommend getting a hardkernel's Odroid-U3:
For $59 you get a 4-core 1.7-2.0Ghz 2GB mem machine that runs Debian
natively (ships with Android or Ubuntu but getting Debian is a matter of
downloading and dd-ing an image).
You need to include their power supply (power requirements are quite
specific), and you should get their "special" eMMC too: on SD you get IO
speeds around 16MB/s, these eMMC: read 140MB/s write 35MB/s.
Gnome 3, Windows 8, Slashdot Beta, now Firefox Ribbon^WAustralis. WTF is going
on with replacing usable interfaces with tabletized ones?
