When CherryPal was first introduced, there have been skepticisms on whether or not the device will hit volume production. In fact, no one has ever been able to get hands-on with the little device. But few days ago, Samantha Rose Hunt from TG Daily just received her $250 CherryPal box; and this confirm that CherryPal is alive after all. ~LOL~
Head on to the link above to read her quick first impressions from the diminutive cloud computer, and here are some of the important remarks taken from her article:
- When I booted the system, I was greeted with an extremely unattractive login prompt. The provided login worked right away and revealed a basic Linux desktop.
- The PC has no moving parts, thus making it inaudible.
- The computer comes with a great amount of preinstalled software, among which are programs such as Firefox, a few games, OpenOffice, and an independent word processor.
- One of the things that instantly worked on the PC was the Wi-Fi connection.
- When utilizing Firefox to navigate the web, I noticed that Firefox runs extremely slow.
Samantha's verdict so far on the CherryPal is: "Personally, it isn’t something that I can utilize as my everyday PC. I need the bells and whistles, but if you’re looking for a compact cloud computing device, this might just work."
