Not with these, sorry. 

I know somebody who owns a "fit-PC 2" [1], which is really cool in terms 
of power consumption. It is cool as a device, as well, but I don't know 
how easy it is to get a free driver running on it (it has one of the few 
graphics chips that don't come with a free driver by intel :().

The Jetway J8F9 [2] is a really cute device, it doesn't consume a lot of 
power neither, and it does run with free drivers. But it is really slow 
--- resulting from its Geode CPU.

The Cirrus7 One [3, sorry: link in German] looks really neat to me. It 
comes with GNU/Linux preinstalled. Does anyone know whether it runs well 
with free drivers?

Oh yeah, there are many nice devices running with free software... 
...and I am not answering your questions ;)

The thing I'd love to see: A cool low power somewhat embedded GNU/Linux 
PC with an ARM CPU --- there would be plenty of them on the market 
already, if people wouldn't always demand proprietary Windows... :/
