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 !

The new Linutop 3 fanless Atom PC is available!

We’re happy to announce the new version of Linutop 3 : more powerful, while requiring less enery consumption (<16w), thanks to its new Atom based N270 processor.

Linutop 3 is :

  • fanless with no moving part
  • energy efficient,
  • robust,
  • maintenance free,

which is a great advantage over other solutions.

The new Linutop 3 is powered by Linutop OS 4 , lightweight and optimized Ubuntu Gnome distribution including internet and display kiosks for professional uses available for download or on a USB key . It boots up around 25 s after bios when installed on the flash card.
