Zonbu takes subscription PC concept to $280 notebook

updated 01:35 pm EST, Wed November 28, 2007

Zonbu Notebook

Translating its relative success with the original Zonbu Desktop to portables, Zonbu today unveiled the Zonbu Notebook. Like the original Linux system, the Everex-made 15.4-inch system is based primarily around a subscription for network storage and programs: 50GB of space not only backs up information stored on the local system but offers a continually updated software suite that never needs to be manually updated. Unlike the desktop, however, the portable includes a 60GB hard disk with enough space to store many files locally and comes with both a DVD burner and built-in Wi-Fi.

The Zonbu system is pitched as an eco-friendly alternative to most notebooks and runs on a low-power 1.5GHz Via C7-M processor that the company says is far more efficient than traditional desktops as well as most portables. It ships with 512MB of RAM and is available for $280 with a $15 monthly subscription to the network storage feature. Subscribers can shorten the contract to one year for $380 or escape a contract entirely for $480.
