For $99 you can get a Zonbu with a 2 year subscription to their online storage service, or $249 without.  As it only has 4GBs of flash memory onboard, the online storage can come in very handy, but that same fact keeps the power drain below 13W!  It comes pre-loaded with Gentoo Linux and FireFox, the Evolution mail client, OpenOffice.org, the Gimp and more.   Its' powered by a 1.2GHz VIA Eden ULV processor and 512 MB RAM; head to VIA Arena to see what else this tiny (think 5 1/2" drive) little PC can do

"There is an urban myth that a standard cheap digital watch in 2007 has more horse power than the computer that

helped put man on the moon in 1969-a computer that occupied several rooms. I don't know if that's really accurate,

but what the myth alludes too, in tech, is real: the ratio of size, and price vs power is constantly shrinking. But

there's another urban myth, or perhaps really a mantra of consumerism: you have to have the fastest available.

Zonbu epitomizes the first myth and crushes the second."
