Everex green computers

In the mid-2000s, Everex began selling several brands of green computers. These computers are targeted at users that only need access to web applications, versus Microsoft Windows-based applications (however, the company does sell Windows Vista-installed variants).



The "gBook" is a laptop with a 15.4" WXGA+ Widescreen Display (1440 x 900) and a 1.5GHz VIA C7®-M Processor. It comes loaded with gOS Linux. [http://www.everex.com/products/gbook/gbook.htm gBook at Everex.com]


Two major variants of the gPC exist: one based on gOS Linux; the other, an Impact brand of Windows VistaFact|date=May 2008 low-power machines. Both utilize a VIA C7 CPU. The gPC also ships with a softmodem that is not enabled for consumer use, but is provided "for developers." A sequel, gPC2, [ [http://www.everex.com/products/gpc2/gpc2.htm Everex - The Alternative PC Company ] ] is available through Wal-Mart.

It is intended as a competitor to the Mac mini.


The Cloudbook is an Ultra-Mobile PC, running a VIA C7 CPU with either gOS Linux or Windows Vista. There is also a Stepnote variant that uses a Pentium dual-core CPU, instead of a VIA C7.


gOS Linux is used on the lower-end models of the gPC and Cloudbook. Its core application suite is built upon Google Apps, and does not have many other applications installed. The other models use Windows Vista Home Basic, and its installed base of applications.
