"A New York City based start-up is readying a silent, low-cost, 
Linux-based computing appliance said to burn an order of magnitude less 
power than traditional PCs. The Zonbu Zonbox runs Gentoo Linux and two 
dozen open source applications on a Via C7 processor clocked at 1.2GHz."

"It consumes 15 Watts (average), or 131 kW/year, generating about 97 
pounds of CO2 emissions, according to Zonbu. ... A standard PC, in 
comparison, consumes 175 Watts on average, or 1,533 kW/year."

Thanks,
Donnie
