The RouterBoard guys have some neat products.  They've moved
to 64-bit MIPS4000 series and away from AMD/NS Geode GX1
(Cyrix M2 core) products.  The RouterOS is also a nice
solution (although it doesn't seem to have a full security
suite), it's a basic Router and NAT/PAT solution with
monitoring (and it does that well).

You'll still want to have additional capabilities outside the
box though.

And when I build an IPCop box, I like to go for the
RouterBOARD 4x products -- 4 independent NICs on a PCI card. 
Especially the newer 44 which is an universal 3.3/5V card
which works in any system (legacy 32-bit, 5V PCI to 3.3V
PCI-X slots), and does auto-MDX (which is a Godsend for some
"smaller" clients ;-).
