What kind of XBOX 360 for a media extender?

I've never had a media extender. If I look for a used XBox 360, what would be the minimum requirements to use as an extender?
I see some really cheap ones on ebay, like $25 or so.
Is this already described somewhere?

Any Xbox 360 will work. I would stay away from the white ones unless you know how to look for a Jasper revision. The Xbox 360 Slim and Xbox 360 E are the most reliable. Unless you have Xbox 360 games I would instead look for a media center extender as they will use MUCH less power than any revision of 360. The 360's do make great extenders though.
