Even the various 1800s should be able to do this.  They don't lag too
far behind the 2801.

I've done a very simple BGP setup for a client using a 2801.  Two 
providers, a T1 to one and ethernet to the other, accepting a BGP 
generated default from each and announcing only one prefix to both.
puts very little load on the router.

Would I try to do full routes on it?  No :-)
