How does it work?


The Cloudsto MK802III LE plugs into any HDMI compatible display or TV and is powered by one USB cable. Simply plug in, connect a keyboard and mouse, turn on and enjoy the world of Linux on any display.




So what is Picuntu?

Picuntu is a Linux distribution optimised for ARM devices, basically its a version of Ubuntu Linux which is the 3rd most popular operating system in the world... and whats more, its FREE... and so is all the software for it!
The Picuntu OS is provided on a 16GB Micro SD card with each MK802III LE. Simply insert the SD card into the MK802III LE, turn on and you are good to go.
When you start Picuntu you land on the desktop, a familiar place to be if you are used to Windows and Mac computers. From here you can browse the internet, check mail, manage files, create documents, make websites, edit photos, listen to music and much much more with the many built in applications. If you fancy doing more you can launch the Ubuntu software Center and download 1000's more applications specifically designed for ARM Linux.


Its a real computer, theres no constraints!!!

So many uses...


The Cloudsto MK802III LE is an unbelievably flexible platform that can be used as a standalone computer or as a device for carrying out dedicated tasks, for example it could be set up as a local file server, webserver, media player, digital signage device or whatever Linux application you need a small low energy computer to run. Anything is possible and with the growing popularity and support for Linux on the internet there are now more tutorials than ever before to help you integrate the device into your project.



Powerful and efficient


The Cloudsto MK802III LE Mini PC is so small it can be easily taken from place to place and used anywhere there is a display available, it also runs on a fraction of the power that a traditional PC uses and can replace it in many applications freeing up space on the desk and reducing energy bills. No longer do you require an expensive Windows PC to simply browse the web, send emails and edit word documents or excel sheets. You also don't need to worry about viruses either as Linux is one of the most secure operating systems in the world.
