ALEUTIA – 8W computing!

Make Pt0127
Designed for rural Africa the ALEUTIA is small 8W computer, here are some of the specs and info…

  • During peak performance, the E1 consumes just 8W of power, 4% of what a typical (200W) desktop uses. Runs off a car battery or a cheap solar panel.
  • Keep Working During Power Cuts! A UPS that will keep a standard desktop running for 15 minutes will power an E1 for 6.5 hours!
  • Everything is stored on a CF card, which can be instantly removed to ensure security of your information.
  • Efficient web browser for slow Internet connections.
  • Discounted 5-Pack for rural schools available, with low-power displays, solar panel, and battery.
