I'd look into the Baytrail atom tablets, they seem to do fine with indie games and can run AAA titles though on low graphics. But we're talking 250 and it would be mobile as well. The only question is if they have an HDMI output.

If they come out with baytrail micro PC's like they did with the old atom processors it'll be under 200.
