Tangent introduced a new green computer called the Evergreen 17. The system is a slim, all-in-one design that uses a touch screen and has very low power requirements. The system uses a Via Eden 1.0GHz CPU that requires no fan.
It can also be optioned with a faster ViaC7 1.50GHz CPU with a low noise fan. The Evergreen 17 runs on Windows XP Pro or Windows XP Embedded. A Linux version is also available. The computer can be ordered with SSDs from 1GB to 64GB of storage capacity. Normal HDDs with 60GB to 250GB are available as well. The system starts at $1195.
"Not only do users experience computing with a touch screen LCD in a space-saving form factor, they also get industry leading power efficiency at 24 watts and 72% less energy usage than Energy Star 4.0 limits," said Douglas Monsour, Tangent's President. "This translates into cost-savings while, at the same time, helping the environment."
