What do they say about us?

PC Magazine"Zonbu PC is a good alternative to the traditional desktop PC. It runs Gentoo Linux, which is a lot more usable than the gOS Linux on the gPC. This is the EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 4.0 certified PC to buy if your computing needs run mainly on the Web. It's the first PC Mag Green Approved product ever." (03/17/08) Read more  

LinuxDevices.com"The Zonbu Laptop proved to be one of the most civilized, well-behaved Linux systems I have ever used...I've held off writing the review for so long, hoping to find a serious nit or two to pick. I have not been able to do it. It's as perfect a machine as computers get..." (03/19/08) Read more  

Practically Networked"...the Zonbook won't necessarily save you big money, [but] it can save you something almost as valuable--time and aggravation--by eliminating the need for to find, install, configure and update all kinds of software on your own. It's this convenience, combined with the data backup and remote access (that you'd have to pay for separately in the Windows world) that make the Zonbook an attractive option." (02/20/08) Read more  

HelpMeRick.com"Wow!! From box to complete usability in less than 15 minutes, no other laptop on the market can accomplish that in triple that time for any cost much less for under $400!...Overall, Zonbu exceeded my expectations for a pre-packaged Linux computer. I stand by my opinion that a Zonbu (or other Linux computer) would be an ideal system for at least 80% of the computing population" (02/18/08) Read more  

PC Magazine"If you're buying a laptop for the very first time and have heard horror stories about computer viruses, tech support nightmares, and onerous system maintenance, the Everex Zonbu Notebook provides a plan that will alleviate most if not all of these concerns." (02/11/08) Read more  

Hardware in Review"I'm so impressed by the Zonbu that I'm tempted to ditch my Linux workstation and totally switch over to it. It's a revolution in desktop computing roughly equivalent to the advent of desktop Linux itself. It opens new doors to hardware, software, and storage possibilities that were previously closed by vendor lock-in..." (01/29/08) Read more  

New York Times"Are you the computer-savvy member of your family, the one who goes home for the holidays only to find yourself in front of multiple computers, trouble-shooting instead of celebrating? Then maybe the Zonbu Notebook should be on your gift list." (12/13/07) Read more

Tech Republic"I pulled the [Zonbu Notebook] out of the box, plugged it in, and was delighted that the machine worked flawlessly out of the box... In fact, I would be more than happy to point all those relatives and friends to Zonbu for this nifty little laptop, so I wouldn't have to serve as their support so often." (12/02/07) Read more  

Gizmodo"What distinguishes the Zonbu...is the Zonbu Plan, which offers automatic software upgrades and synchronized online storage for a monthly fee...With the $15/mo plan the hard drive links up with the Amazon S3 server and provides backup and additional storage that can be accessed from anywhere." (11/28/07) Read more

(07/23/07) Read more  

Gizmodo"And for you greenies, remember, this baby uses just 10 watts while a standard PC uses 200 watts, and it has EPEAT Gold status for being made entirely out of earth-friendly materials. Put that in Al Gore's pipe and smoke it." (07/17/07) Read more
