The Beagleboard has a pretty powerful TI DSP chip that can crank through HD
video - which is actually what the chip was designed to do.

Arduino is a set of libraries and doesn't have to be tied to any platform.
 I use Arduino libs with a PIC32 at 80Mhz that is 10 times faster than an
Arduino Uno.  It's much easier to get something running compared to MPLAB.
 There is an ARM based 'Arduino' called the Maple that uses an ARM Coretx 3
(72Mhz) but the project doesn't appear that active.
