The Zonbu: A Green, Efficient PC

zonbu-pc.jpg

The Zonbu is a new, very energy efficient PC. The Zonbu consumes just one third of the power of a typical light bulb. The device runs the Linux operating system using a 1.2 gigahertz processor and 512 meg of RAM. It also contains no moving parts, and does even contain a fan. You can get one for as little as $99, but it does require you to sign up for a two-year subscription.


EcoGeek gives us a run-down on the subscription service:

This service provides you with free, seamless software and firmware updates, up to 100 gigs of storage space, and carbon offsets for your Zonbu usage. If you pay for two years in advance, the price of the unit goes down to $99. The cheapest plan (for 25 gigs of storage) is $12.95. But if you’re switching from an older PC, you could literally save that much off your utility bill.

There’s a blog called Mr Zonbu, which tracks a user’s real-life experience with the machine.
