Pentaform Announces Keyboard on Windows 10 and Intel Atom Abacus

Pentaform Announces “Keyboard on Windows 10 and Intel Atom” Abacus Basic Biodegradable Computer for $150

The London-based company Pentaform announced the start of sales of biodegradable computer keyboards at a price of the equivalent of 150 US dollars. The Abacus Basic solution is positioned as a relatively compact and very affordable desktop solution for those who cannot afford anything more powerful. The model runs on Windows 10.

According to the manufacturer, the Abacus computer is the cheapest PC model in the world. Externally, this is the most common office keyboard with an integrated touchpad. But inside there is a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor with a frequency of 1.44 GHz (1.84 GHz with overclocking), released in 2016. It should be enough to do simple tasks like surfing the web with writing posts and watching videos. The novelty comes with 2, 4 or 8 GB of dual-channel LPDDR3-1866 memory – faster options are not supported.

What makes a computer special is its environmental compatibility. The body is made from a biodegradable polymer and the internal components are optimized for easy replacement and recycling. Notably, the model uses only about 31 kWh per year, about the same as a lighting bulb.
