VeryPC's 16W Fulwood 75% more efficient than Energy Star (and 4x faster than Atom)
Eco computer company VeryPC announces the launch of a high performance 16Watt dual-cored, ultra small, media centre PC, aptly named Fulwood (after the prestigious suburb of Sheffield). At over four times faster than Intel atom based Green PCs and at almost half the energy consumption Fulwood offers extremely high performance and flexibility while retaining its environmental standing. Whereas a normal PC will consume 85W-210W.
The Fulwood, the size of a mac mini, despite its meagre power draw doesnâ€™t fall short on features, which include an Intel P9500 2.53GHz dual core CPU, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Intel x4500HD graphics, DVDRW, remote control, Windows Vista Premium, Gigabit Network card, DVI (with DVI-VGA splitter for dual screens and HDMI adaptor), and surround sound audio (with SPIDIF optical interface).
Like with all VeryPC machines the Fulwood is fully customisable. Available options include internal WiFi, internal digital/hybrid TV tuner and internal Bluetooth.
VeryPC hopes the Fulwood will become one of the first PCs to be seen on the new European Energy Star List and the Energy Saving Trustâ€™s Recommended List with impressively low power consumption figures of 16Watts idle for the base model, 19Watts idle with all the available upgrade options, and only 2Watts in â€˜sleep modeâ€™. These figures are 75% below the in use threshold of Energy Star 4.0 category B, which requires 65Watts or less at idle in Windows desktop.

The Fulwood will be available to pre-order from the 25h September on a deposit basis, and will be available to purchase online at www.very-pc.co.uk
