Zonbu: Eco-friendly, tiny computer


The Zonbu is something of a new take on home computing. The actual device is small, silent, Linux-based (KDE) and eco-friendly and instead of a regular hard drive it features 4 GB of Flash based storage.

The grand thought behind the Zonbu is to sign up for a subscription ranging from Zonbu lite ($12.95/month) to Zonbu premium ($19.95/month) for on-line storage space at their ‘disaster-proof’ servers ranging from 25 to 100 GB as well as automatic backups, application and OS maintenance, free upgrades, free device replacement and unlimited online support.

My take: Personally I’d love to see more mini computers running Linux on the market (both the GNOME and KDE desktop environments are quite mature nowadays) but please, give me local storage.
