The Wall Street Journal on the Zonbu


The Wall Street Journal has a new and www.accessibleadventuresvt.org interesting review of the Zonbu mini-PC.

The real story here is that EcoGeek's video content is significantly higher quality than that of the Wal Street Journal. I mean, it's not great, but at least our laptop isn't reflecting in our eyeglasses, and we're not sitting in front of disorganized shelves of clutter. But, if you pay attention, there's also an interesting review of the Zonbu carbon-free PC.

EcoGeek has been syndicating some of Mr. Zonbu's content, and here's what he has to say about the review:

My Observations

I think the review makes some valid points that other reviews have missed, but I also think it was a bit tough on the product. I’ve logged a lot more hours than Walt, using the device, and I haven’t experienced the “crawling” speeds that he referred to. I can’t speak to his issue but it doesn’t match my or other posted experiences.

Apps open quickly (and I’ve posted times to document the wow it's great how to buy levitra same), multitasking hasn’t been too much of selling cialis online an issue (within reason) and general stability has been good. Not great, but good. You have to use the device “in context” as well; it is levitra headaches not meant to replace a $4000 dual-core workstation.

Stability?

His review left me with the impression that the system was very unstable and that just hasn’t been my experience, although I think it does need some serious bug hunting. That being said, even in its current state, I think it could be used as a public Internet terminal without causing too much grief.

Missing bits and pieces?

Unmentioned were the media playback capabilities. Other than the outstanding MPEG issue, the box handles media really well, which is important for web surfing in todays world.

He also mentioned that no personal finance software was included or could be installed. In fact, there is a nice Quicken-esque personal finance application included. I haven’t used it to any degree yet, but I did take a quick look.

Conclusion

Overall, I think its a relatively fair and tough review. We do agree that the box isn’t quite ready for prime-time yet. I think the concept and vision are great, but the execution and polish need more work. I stand by my original forecast that the holiday season will be critical for desktop linux.
