ZonBox Zero Emissions PC?

Remember just the other day when we were saying that $300 was too much to spend for a ultra-small, low-power, linux PC? Well, I was right, which is why ZonBox is how to get viagra offering a low-wattage linux box superior to the Linutop for only $99.

Of course, the ZonBox requires a subscription, which is a revenue model that has, so far, not worked at all for computer manufacturers.

Nonetheless, the ZonBox is worth discussing because its model holds a great deal of cambridgeacademyaz.com potential for the http://cngnewengland.com/online-viagra future of green computing. After you lay down the $99 for the machine, ZonBox charges users $12.95 a month for a variety of services like remote access, networked data storage and i recommend cheap discount cialis software updates for its open source suite of applications.

The ZonBox consumes about six watts of power and uses simple non-toxic components (it's harddrive is a compact flash card.) Depending on your current setup, using a ZonBox could save you more in ultilities costs than you'll be paying for your subscription, an excellent enticement.

ZonBox is definitely aware of the environmental appeal of its new offering. Just now when I signed up to get updates from the company, one of the best choice buy cialis next day delivery the three questions they asked was "How much does a zero-emissions PC interest you." So maybe carbon offsets will be part of the subscription price.

Low-hassle backups
written by BCC, July 25, 2007

CF,

Because you have little free time and don't want the hassle?

I am perfectly capable of installing whatever Linux distro on whatever machine, and messing with config files to get everything working. But I have a wife, kids, job, and I just don't want to spend my time on that any more. Sure, Ubuntu has made this pretty brainless, but still.

Further, automating backups from various home machines is made easier if you have a 24x7 file server. But that's a lot of wasted energy with a typical server; this thing runs ~10W.

CF, does this Zonbu thing make sense for you? Doesn't sound like it.

For me? Sure- the subscription fee is fairly competitive (last I checked) when viewed as off-site storage warranty other services (auto-update, etc.)

I plan to get one to serve as my no-hassle off-site backup file server, and let the kids bang on it. My first machines cost

Subscription

I think the subscription is for more than just upgrades, etc. The Zonbu actually only has 4gb of memory. You save most of your stuff online, which is where the subscription comes in. The nice thing is that your files are all backed up that way, and you can access any of brand viagra your files from any computer with an internet connection. So, it's really not a bad deal. :)
