How about education, outreach and training?  There are at least a couple of projects [1] that use small, home-built clusters in e.g. for undergraduate CS education, faculty education/re-training for parallel programming and cluster computing, and the like.  Microsoft [2] and others have also used platforms like this to explore low-power, on-demand compute platforms.
