The open source GNUbook computer design utilizing open source OS and software applications will be presented using virtual modeling to demonstrate the GNUbook assembly and to illustrate basic unique design features that provide for:

  • A logical order of dis-assembly that reveals parts in order of need for access
  • Accurate assembly of nine basic uniquely nested parts
  • Elimination of screws and cables
  • Elimination of plastics for clean manufacturing and production processes
  • The assembly of super computer clusters using a self-racking feature requiring no cables
  • Implementation of "Green" IEEE computing standards and "Easy PC" Wintel standards
  • Implementation of an advanced thin client embedded device agent as a system bios
  • Reduced size for a full desktop computer approximately 2" by 8.5" by 11"

    The presentation of the GNUbook design will include a display of prototype components of the GNUbook and a demonstration of a developmental model, a period for questions and discussion before the presentation of the GNU++ agreement. The presentation and discussion should reveal that GNUbook is a low cost and low risk venture that offers a unique product and opportunity for academic, nonprofit, and for profit organizations in the marketplace.
