Zonbu Laptop
The Zonbu laptop is a green, ´hassle-free´ computer.

Silicon Valley company Zonbu has recently announced its newest product: a green laptop that comes with a hassle-free service plan, which includes online tech support and automatic updates.

The Zonbu laptop starts at $279, and the service plan costs an additional $15 per month. Additional features of the service include 20 software applications, online storage, remote file access, file sharing, automated backup, and free replacement warranty as long as you're a member. With this service plan, Zonbu is aiming at a family audience, and suggests the laptop might be ideal for younger children or anyone who doesn´t like to struggle with computer problems.

The laptop runs on Zonbu's OS software, a user-friendly interface that includes see-through menus, which is also highly secure and immune to Windows viruses. Conveniently, the system also enables remote access to your files from anywhere on the Internet, with nothing to set up.

Besides being easy to use, the laptop is also rated highly by the Green Electronics Council for its energy efficiency. The device uses recycled plastics, contains no dangerous chemicals such as lead, and Zonbu offers free recycling of the device. In this sense, the laptop shares similarities with the Zonbu PC released this past summer. As the world´s smallest desktop (5" x 6.5" x 2"), the Zonbu PC has local/remote hybrid storage that saves up to 90% in energy costs, with a starting price of $99.

Unlike the PC, the Zonbu laptop isn't ultra-tiny. Weighing in at 5.3 pounds (2.4 kg), it has a 15.4" widescreen (1440 x 900), a 1.5 GHz processor, 512 MB of memory, and 60 GB of hard disk local storage. The laptop also comes with built-in wifi, broadband-ready Ethernet, three USB ports, and a CD/DVD burner.
