VeryPC Introduces Ultra Low Power Mini Desktop


Our friends over at SmartPlanet report that British computer manufacturer Very PC has introduced an incredibly low power mini desktop PC. The Fulwood uses only 16 watts while idling. While there are other computers that use a similarly low amount of energy, most of them are laptops.

The Mac-mini sized Fulwood performs well despite its low power usage— it includes an Intel P9500 2.5GHz dual core processor, 250GB hard drive, and Intel x4500HD graphics card.

Critics may point out that the Fulwood hardly compares to the CherryPal, which uses only 2 watts of power. But the CherryPal’s Linux-only desktop could turn off casual computers users. Additionally, the CherryPal isn’t as fast as Very PC’s model.

The Fulwood is available for pre-order starting September 25, and ranges in price between £868 to £1104.
