0 Comments »

Zonbu notebook is a cheap inexpensive laptop. Usually people looking for more security prefer Linux based Operating Systems as it is very difficult to crack. Everex Zonbu Notebook has been launched recently and is available with a version of Linux OS. It comes with a service that automatically provides all the software, storage, updates, and maintenance you need without any of the hassle (or viruses) typical of other computers. It has a rechargable Lithium ion battery. which usually gives 2-3 hours of backup under normal load.

Everex Zonbu Notebook is around1.5 inches thick and weight is around 5 pounds. It has a 15.4 inch widescreen display. For clear display, it also has WXGA display i.e 1440 X 900 along with VGA output. For game loving people, this notebook comes with a VIA Chrome9 HC IGP graphics card having a 64 MB shared memory. The most important feature of Zonbu notebook is that it is very much power efficient. It takes less power unlike other notebooks and according to a test conducted specially for this notebook, it can save upto 10$ of your electricity bill using this. Sounds good to me...

Coming to the packages that comes with this notebook, it offers free Open Office for day to day word processing, excel related tasks, creating presentations, Banshee for organising and playing the media files, Skype software to have IP telephonic Internet calls, Pidgin software for Instant messaging, MPlayer media payer to run CDs and DVDs, F Spot and Gimp for picture organizing. Zonbu notebook is compatible with Apple Ipods but we need to purchase the music files.

The greatest disadvantage of this notebook is that you can not install any software inside it which means we can use only the softwares which comes inbuilt with this notebook. Thats bad...Now coming to price, you can get this notebook for 279$. Apart from this, in order to avail the Zonbu service, you need to pay an additional 14.95$/month.

Lets move on to some technical specifications of Everex Zonbu notebook. It comes with VIA C7-M and the processor speed is 1.5 GHz which is too low now a days. The processor is Intel compatible and as I mentioned above, it is energy saver. With this cost, we cant get any other notebook. Its gentoo Linux (v. 2.6.22) is quite powerful and is capable to emulate any popular Operating System and providing a great GUI experience. This notebook has pre-installed Linux based OS and apart from this, it also comes with 20 Windows-like applications some of which I mentioned above. The hard disk capacity is only 60 GBs out of which 2 GB is already taken over by Linux. The RAM is 512 MBs which is okay to run normal applications. It has an inbuilt Wi-Fi card with 802.11 b/g specifications and for Internet connection, it comes with 10/100 Ethernet
