There's a catch of course rather than Windows the endless mission runs its own custom operating system the Linux-based endless OS that may sound intimidating, but the built-in web browser is chromium the open-source version of Google's Chrome browser that gives you a very familiar interface to work with plus access to web-based stuff like Gmail Netflix and Amazon and there's already a ton of pre-installed software including in encyclopedia and science and education apps that all work even when the system is offline .

HERE'S WHAT THE VIDEO SAYS

Buying the cheap desktop PC doesn't mean being stuck with an ugly plastic box .

For less than even most budget systems, you can get the charmingly quirky endless mission one this thoroughly mod looking desktop looks more like a Diwali radio than a computer .

It's got a bamboo shell surrounding a white plastic base and the bamboo is sourced from sustainable wood supplies naturally .

There's a catch of course rather than Windows the endless mission runs its own custom operating system the Linux-based endless OS that may sound intimidating, but the built-in web browser is chromium the open-source version of Google's Chrome browser that gives you a very familiar interface to work with plus access to web-based stuff like Gmail Netflix and Amazon and there's already a ton of pre-installed software including in encyclopedia and science and education apps that all work even when the system is offline .


Now for the downside --

  • You can't just go and install other apps you want as you could on a Windows desktop and second, despite the very cool design it just feels kind of slow even when you're surfing the web .
  • If you keep it simple it works okay, just don't run a bunch of tabs for video streams .
  • At once a budget computer is always going to have performance limitations even if it's got a very snazzy high-end look.

HERE'S A SUMMARY THE MISSION ONE COMPUTER CNET REVIEW HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE MISSION ONE

You and I have a nearly limitless array of computer choices, from massive desktops to slim laptops to entire computers build into something the same size as a USB stick. But in emerging markets, the options are much more limited, both in the hardware available and even in the availability of internet access.

That's why I liked the Endless Mini desktop PC we reviewed last year. It was a $79 (approximately 54 or AU$110) desktop in a charming spherical red plastic case, running a custom Linux-based OS. More importantly, it included a ton of educational content pre-loaded, making it a useful tool for students, even without reliable or fast internet access.

Now, the company behind the Endless Mini is bringing some of these ideas to the US, it said here at CES, with a pair of new mini-desktops that have a more refined look, and new software packages that can help teach kids about coding.

The new Endless Mission Mini and Mission One both run the same Endless OS operating system as the original, but have modern, much more premium-feeling designs, highlighted by bamboo (sustainably harvested, according to the company).

The $129 Mission Mini ( 105 or AU$180) runs an ARM processor, has a small 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. The $249 Mission One ( 200 or AU$345) is a bit of a step up, with a 500GB hard drive and an Intel Celeron processor, which should offer greatly improved performance. Note that you still have to supply your own mouse, keyboard and display.

Because they run a custom non-Windows operating system, standard Windows programs won't run on these, but as with the original Endless Mini, many web-based apps and services will work just fine.

The systems will also work with the company's latest software initiative, which it calls Endless Code. A pre-installed package of tutorials and tools for teenage-level prospective coders, Endless says it's, "The world's most immersive, barrier-free platform for learning to code."
