Low-power in what sense?  Work done, or watts consumed?  <G>

I would still very much like to have a low-powered (watts) system running 
NTP perhaps with a good (for timekeeping) FreeBSD version.  Something the 
size of a home router, with a serial port for the GPS.  Looking for better 
than (say) ten microsecond accuracy.  About US $100-150.
