Another day another green PC. This time around we have the fit-PC, whichis about the size of a regular paperback book. It's also a pretty bare-bones machine for a few hundred bucks.
The fit-PC's claim to green fame is its low power consumption - it draws a maximum of five watts in normal operation and under three watts when idling. It reportedly is much more capable than a thin client, being capable of generally handling Windows XP or Linux. All of this plus a multi-resistant enclosure which houses a fanless, low-power design.
What do you get inside this $285 machine? In this case the fit-PC has an AMD Geode chip, 256MB of RAM, 40GB hard drive and an Ethernet port. You also get Gentoo Linux preloaded (you'll need to purchase Windows XP separately if you want to install it.) This does sure does seem like a great little green PC, but how does it compare to the new Zonbu?
