This is the simPC. It is a micro PC that is roughly the size of a VHS cassette tape. This machine has the ability to surf the internet, E-mail, do online banking, browse photo, basic word processing and making internet phone calls. That is it. On the downside, there is no CD burning, and no ways to "install software yourself." On the up-side there it is easy to use, safe, problem free (supposedly), small, quiet and energy efficient. Probably a good PC for Grandma, or maybe the pet dog, other than that most people are going to need quite a bit more out of a PC. At 349 ($430 USD) there are definitely better PC options out there.
