Revolutionary Foxconn Nanocomputer ($499 with 24″ monitor, waterproof wireless keyboard & mouse)

notes on the Foxconn NT-A3500 nanocomputer:

  • about the size of a paperback book and it comes with a bracket that allows it to be bolted to the back of a flat panel monitor.It has a space for a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive.
  • It’s wireless.
  • It works with Windows 7.
  • It also works nicely with Ubuntu Linux.
  • In fact, you can even boot Linux from a 16GB camera SD Card and that’s how I’m currently testing them (see screen capture below)Photobucket
  • It has a built in speaker that’s actually louder than the monitor speakers in many current models.
  • Using a camera card as a hard drive substitute means that you can completely change the way the computer operates by simply swapping out SD cards without even opening the case.
  • It’s powerful enough for entertainment including Hulu and the Ubuntu package includes Libre Office [Word Processor, Spreadsheet and Presentation (Powerpoint compatible)].
  • It uses very little power and is ideal for someone who wants to run their computer 24/7 without adding a lot to the power bill.
