CherryPal Launches New Energy-Efficient Computer
(Wireless News Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)
CherryPal, maker of green personal computers, has launched its
CherryPal cloud computer.
According to company officials, CherryPal is a new type of PC that has
no moving parts, contains 80 percent fewer components, uses only two
watts of power, and is secure.
"Today's typical PC is based on a computing model created 25 years ago,
before the Internet, web browsers and global warming," said CherryPal
CEO Max Seybold. "We have developed a new computing model that makes
CherryPal the easiest to use, greenest, most affordable computer
CherryPal noted the desktop consumes just two watts of power, compared
to the 114 watts of power used by the average desktop machine,
delivering a 98 percent decrease in energy consumption. In addition, it
also uses 80 percent fewer components, reducing the amount of resources
it takes to manufacture a PC. And because there are no moving parts,
the CherryPal desktop can last a decade or longer, eliminating the need
to replace a computer every two to three years.
CherryPal also noted that instead of accessing programs and data from
your desktop computer, the majority of information is processed and
stored on the web in an environment called the CherryPalCloud, which is
automatically accessed at boot-up.
CherryPal's operating system is based on a version of open source
Debian/GNU Linux that has been customized; the browser is based on a
version of open source Firefox. The CherryPal's browser supports all
major browser plug-ins including Adobe Flash 9.
