Imagine a Ubuntu Linux desktop with respectable specs for $89! A cost-effective fit for classroom labs, call-centers, non-profit organizations or small businesses. Symple makes it true using desktops re-manufactured from 100% recycled products. The goal of the project is to utilize our e-waste and use it for purposes which benefit low-budget or underprivileged situations.
Symple started as an idea of its founder, Jason Spisak, in 2001. It’s driven by our responsibilities to the planet. in addition to re-using e-waste the organization also donates $2 per unit sold to software projects that make this possible such as Debian, Ubuntu and LibreOffice via Software in the Public Interest, and sends them each a check every six months.
