Zonbu ultra-cheap Linux PC

Undercutting the likes of Koobox, a company called Zonbu is readying a self-named Linux computer that is in some ways cheaper even in its most expensive configuration. To achieve this, the computer does away with a fan, and has only 4GB of internal flash memory; files are instead stored on Zonbu's servers, with monthly access plans beginning at $13 for 25GB, and ranging up to 100GB. Software comes in the form of over 23 free applications, such as Firefox, the OpenOffice suite, and unspecified programs for music and videos.

The system will cost $99 with a service plan, but will be "unlockable" for $250. According to Zonbu, the monthly fees are mostly compensated for by the computer's low power consumption, rated at 15W. The company intends to begin shipping products in the summer. [via Gizmodo]
