What makes Symple PC special?
Mr.Jason Spisak, Founder of Symple PC, says;
“We are at a crossroads in our technological evolution. Our e-waste problem is massive, and many good computers are being piled up or melted down requiring more natural resources every day. Data control by large corporations and government agencies is a tangible concern. Our Symple PC represents another, environmentally intelligent and privacy-aware path. It is one of the most planet-friendly PCs in the world. The case is made from recycled ABS plastic, the parts are recycled, the box has no new fiber content. Even our paper packing tape has bio degradable adhesive. Plus, the Symple PC runs the open source Ubuntu Linux operating system and doesn’t require you to give your data to a company you may or may not trust. With one product, we hit two core issues confronting any responsible business or school faced with today’s technological choices, and we make it elegant, easy and affordable to make the right choice,”.
