Have you looked at the pcDuino ($74 from Littlebird Electronics):
(much higher spec'd than a RPi).

Or, if you want something locally developed (right here in Canberra),
check out the Hackberry A10 ($65) or the Cubieboard ($49):

There are tons of much better alternatives to the RPi (always have
been...). I also +1 Jessica's recommendation of the WDTV - getting
on a bit now, but a solid little performer.
