Ultra-low-power computing from GreenNet

GreenNet is now offering our members a pioneering new development in low-power computing for NGOs/charities and environmentally-conscious home users. A fully-equipped desktop computer that fits in the palm of your hand, yet consumes a mere 9 watts of electricity at peak performance. This nifty little box will not make any noise, drain your power source or dim your lights, but it will run on a car battery for hours! Most desktops use between 150W-250W at peak performance! We’ll leave you to do the maths…

The ultra-low-power E2 mini computer is broadband ready, comes with a fully MS Office compatible suite of applications (OpenOffice) and the hugely popular Free and Open Source operating system known as Ubuntu, a distribution of Linux – and a great alternative to Windows XP/Vista or Mac OS, visit whylinuxisbetter.net to find out more.

Or if you prefer Windows XP, it is also available on the E2.

A Sustainable Computer

  • Smaller Motherboard, Less Toxins: Like most electronics our product contains elements which can be environmentally damaging, but since it’s 16% the size of a standard motherboard, there’s a lot less of them.
  • Simpler Design: Every component is compressed onto one board, extending the lifetime of the system and eliminating sources of e-waste such as hard drives, optical drives, graphics cards, etc.
  • Centralized Production: Everything is made on one assembly line, reducing the amount of carbon emissions needed to produce this workstation.
  • Greener Operating System: Windows and Mac OS are sold in boxes. Massive amounts of paper & plastic are manufactured before the boxes get shipped to shops. Linux is freely downloadable from the Internet; no amount of plastic or paper is involved.

VESA-Mountable, less space...
