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
Now you’ll be able to chose the most valuable PC for your money
PS : thanks to Novirent Blog for highlighting this fact !

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 :
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.
The new Linutop 3 Atom is available on Linutop Shop for the same attractive price : 340€ w/VAT
Linutop announced today the latest version of its operating system 4.0

Big energy saver, Linutop is a green computer
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.
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.
Accor, the European leader in the hotel industry, needed a low maintenance internet kiosk solution for their Orfea hotel lobbies. They looked into Linutop because they realized that with a standard PC, there would still be a need for technical intervention in case of computer crashes and virus attacks, as well as the need to guard against security threats with an anti-virus software which itself would need to be maintained.
When they approached Linutop, they found that the Linutop 2 required very little maintenance because of its secure operating system which could be set to a read-only mode and also be rebooted to its default settings, erasing any prior alterations. Also, Linutop’s light operating system that can be saved on a USB key enabled them to replicate the same configuration in numerous hotel lobbies and backup the default settings at the same time.
Using Linutop 2, Accor was able to implement an internet kiosk solution without requiring on-site IT help. The fact that Linutop 2 is fanless, small, and can be mounted on the back of a computer screen with its mounting bracket allowed Accor to have internet kiosks that were discrete as well.
Later on, after Linutop released Linutop 3, Accor decided to purchase the newer model, which runs on the same operating system as Linutop 2, to replace the older model for their internet kiosks. They chose to reuse Linutop 2 as the digital display solution, presenting their breakfast and lunch menus, as well as weather and traffic information.
