Cheapest evaluation board that support embedded linux (ATNGW100)

I have been searching for a evaluation board that support embedded linux; The ATNGW100 from atmel is the cheapest i could find around.Its based on avr32 - AP7000 microcontroller . Its around $80. You can build linux system and applications for this board either by buildroot or OE (open embedded). only draw back that i could say is that this doesn't have a usb host (AP7000 microcontroller); Other than that its pretty good for $80(Rs 4000). Atmel is gonna release AP720* series which has support for usb host around end of 2008 . Long time for me ,cant wait . Planning to get one of these soon :D
