Gone are the days when you needed to buy a display screen with your computer. The technology has enabled us to put all our devices into a small little box. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, check out Raspberry Pi, a potential computer in a size of a pastry box. Different companies have come forth to build a portable shrunk computer that can be plugged into any display screen to convert into a full-fledged PC. Today I’ll talk about Endless Computer, a real Linux computer that’s for everyone.
Unlike Raspberry Pi, Endless comes with useful attachments that make it more like a PC and not just a CPU on a chip. Endless comes in two models: $169 model and $229 model. The latter comes with a 500GB hard drive, integrated speaker, Bluetooth, and WiFi.
The $129 model comes with 32GB eMMC and SD Storage sans speakers and wireless transmitting capabilities.
Targeted towards the Linux users specifically, this low-end PC has highly customizable operating system features. Versions of Ubuntu Linux based on GNOME 3.x user interface and common Linux applications will be pre-loaded in Endless. The apps could be optimized without any Internet connection too.
With its interesting features and low cost, Endless is expected to be high in demand in developing countries and regions with not-so-good network.
Endless is a pretty good option if you want to own a PC, but lack resources. The company plans to release the computer soon and has got thumbs up in its test product reviews.
