If you want a low power option build a computer with laptop parts such as:

Obviously the biggest factor in power consumption is the supply. With the above a pc can be powered with a 90Watt supply easily.

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Overclocked to 3300+)
ASUS K8V-Deluxe
1GB PC3200 DDR
2x200GB Seagate SATA RAID 0
BFG 6800GT OC w\\128MB Ram
2x 19\" Samsung 930B LCDs
