To me, the more interesting question is:

Can a 1GHz Dothan with a GeForce Go 7300 play back HD? (In MPEG2, 
perhaps?) It appears to be a fairly standard EFI PC, just like a Mac.

I'm thinking an Ubuntu FE, not an OSX FE.

Right, but don't constrain your answer to OSX video drivers. :)

As to 'fixes' to make this harder, I don't think Apple cares. This isn't 
loss-leader hardware like a PS3 or XBOX.
