Iím looking at a low-cost alternative to leaving my computer powered to maintain MJ. Has anyone used the new Intel Atom Processor/Motherboard for this purpose?

I don't see any reason why it would not work.

Should work fine, but you could also do a thin client with XPe (see my sig).

I'll second the suggestion for an XPe based thin client. I have 4 HP t5720s, 2 of which run MagicJacks, and I just picked up a t5730. These little beasts are inexpensive (look on eBay and be patient -- the demand for these has picked up considerably, lately -- I'm not sure why), they consume only about 30 watts of power, have no moving parts or fans so they're completely quiet, and are powerful and versatile enough to do lots more than just run MagicJacks. I'm using one of MJ machines as a terabyte-NAS and ftp servers, another one to stream video to my HD TV, though I do actually use one for it's original intended purpose: as an internet appliance.
