This computer is cheap! For $99, you can get yourself a computer. A standard computer? Well, no. But we're digging the concept of Zonbu's Green PC.
What is it? Well it's Linux running machine that weighs under two pounds. There's no hard drive, but instead, 4GB of flash memory. Where do you store your files? Well, for a small, monthly fee (of $12.95) you can have remote storage space for all your photos, documents, and anything else you might need to save.

And as for green, is this computer really "green?" Well, Zonbu certainly hypes it as such. It's average energy use is 17 Watts, it's small size means using a whole lot less materials, and their recycling program will take your Zonbu device when you're finished with it. But we think the remote file storage is a green idea they fail to properly highlight. Consolidating everyone's file storage to central locations, means less hard drives floating around the landfill.
The bottom line, this is a really simple pc, which is exactly what it's makers intended. Simple design, simple materials, and simple storage all adds up to a computer with a very light environmental impact.
