Hassle-free mobility

The hassle-free Zonbu service is no longer limited to your desktop! Take your Zonbu Notebook anywhere you like — at friends, at work or on holidays. With its rugged but lightwight design, it will follow you on all your trips. Work offline or connect to any wifi spot, the 60GB hard-drive stores all your data and backs it up automatically when it’s connected to the Internet.

Friendly to the environment

With Zonbu, green doesn’t have to make you blue! With its efficient ultra low power design, Zonbu delivers the power of a traditional desktop computer but uses just a fraction of the energy. That could mean as much as $10 a month in energy savings for you — and might just help save the planet, too. Not only does Zonbu’s low power design reduce CO2 emissions, but by buying carbon offsets, we make the operation of your Zonbu device completely carbon neutral. Talk about guilt-free computing!

A real self-starter

The best thing about Zonbu is that it just works — right out of the box. Connect it to your broadband Internet, press the power botton and go. You’ll be surfing in moments and using all those productivity and multimedia applications you’ve come to love, without the hassles of maintaining them.

  1. Glad to see their making more green conscious laptops out there. 😉

    Another great way of going green for PCs is to look into a company called Userful. They can turn one ordinary PC box into ten workstations with their linux created desktop software. I’ve used their software and I couldn’t be happier! Don’t hold your breath for Windows or mac to do this anytime soon. Check these guys out – http://www.userful.com

  2. In other words, I real- ized the strange behavior of human beings, who are aggressive for almost no rea- son, especially when they only focus on their local and isolated context, instead of considering the world outside their own. ,
