Linutop 4 and the black storks nesting evolution

Paris, April 27th, 2012, 17.00pm
In Belgium, some Linutop 4 are used in order to record the nesting evolution of black storks.
The Linutop is protected in a weatherproof box recording viedos of these rare birds.

Videos available here: http://www.solon.be/category/la-cigogne-noire/

Its energy efficiency and small size as well as its low noise level makes Linutop an interesting solution for this kind of use. This is an illustration of many possibilities for Linutop solutions (home automation, cameras, etc.)

With Linutop, go green-it !

As Novirent blog pointed out last month (fr), Linutop helps you save money on your Power bills and act for the planet.

Let’s caclulate the difference of cost/year between 2 configuration (for a display usecase for instance):

Assuming 1kWH is $0,10 (see US power average cost),

* Multimedia PC power cost is : $0,10*24h*30days*12monh *160W = $138 /year
* Linutop power cost is $0,10*24h*30days*12monh *8W = $7 /year

Savings are : 131$ a year !

Now you’ll be able to chose the most valuable PC for your money

PS : thanks to Novirent Blog for highlighting this fact !

Green PC?

Big energy saver, Linutop is a green computer

Power saver:
Linutop is made with the latest and greatest technology allowing maximum energy saving. With less than 8 watts (linutop 2) of power consumption it is one of the most energy efficient on the market.
Lightweight 580 gr (20 oz) and small linutop has a low energy footprint for it shipping.

Sustainable development:
No mobile parts, no weak parts, ability to lock the software in one state, will increase linutop life cycle and reduce its maintenance cost. Its low number of parts and small size will ultimately make it easier to recycle.
