About

Why BioGreenPC?  

BioGreenPC was designed by Network and System Administrators who have supported thousands of corporate computers and came up with the perfect combination of Processor, Hard drive capacity, data transfer rate and RAM requirements to meet every business and home user needs.  

Aside from performance benefits it also features a power supply that saves 80% on electricity, making it the only true Sustainable choice for high performance computing.

Due to the success of our first generation BioGreenPC, we are moving towards the next generation with double memory and double storage, but we need your help to put it on the market at unbeatable prices.

Productivity Booster

BioGreenPC boots in 10 seconds or less (boot time starting after POST and may vary depending on the environment) and will continue to perform the same for the years to come. Solid State Drive technology is our signature for all our computing products; electrical signals to write and read data will beat by 10 times the speed of regular spinning plate drives. Less boot time means less employee frustration, less cigarette, coffee and gossip breaks per shift.

Environmentally friendly

The pace of technology accelerates exponentially as more products become available, with better prices and better features as well as shorter release cycles. It seems like a win win situation for both producers and consumers, but what about the environment toll?  

Yes, technology is a necessity and the only choice to stay in business is to stay updated and replace all equipment whenever is possible. But there is always a choice to make this practice sustainable:

As a Business Technology Services company,  we wanted to join the new green movements that are spreading around the globe and be able to educate and help business and consumers about sustainable choices for high performance computers.

We've been selling our first generation BioGreenPC units to manufacturing companies and business offices, where benefits became visible from day one:

Evolution of the Product

We started designing low power regular towers but were not satisfied with only a few savings; after testing aside from the amount of waste generated and high costs of packaging and shipping big volumes. We tried and built many prototypes, shrinking size and power consumption until we were satisfied with the most cost effective Super Computer: BioGreenPC.

It's been almost two years since our first generation BioGeenPC is been in production for a few companies, so it's time to scale it and make them available for all other responsible and successful Businesses and consumers.

With your help, we will be able to acquire components in large quantities to keep pricing competitive.

Whereas in today's world every computer part comes from overseas, we are choosing to assemble in the US, employing local professionals to help our economy and guarantee good quality in the final build.

Our Kickstarter campaign is necessary to launch our Next Generation BioGreenPC, which will feature energy efficient 6th Generation Intel Processors, 16GB on Ram and 240GB of Solid State Drive.  A perfect combination of high performance specifications at prices that beat competitors with Green focus savings:

  • BioGreenPC owners will immediately see a decrease in their electric bill because it only uses 10 to 30 Watts per hour
  • BioGreenPC price tag is 10% to 30% lower than major enterprise computer brands with same specifications
  • BioGreenPC boots in just 10 seconds or less, which eliminates down time and employee frustrations

Allocation of Funds

With your help, our KickStarter campaign will be successful and funds will be used to:

  • Negotiate volume pricing to keep BioGreenPC competitive and affordable
  • Maintain the assembly jobs in the U.S.
  • Maintain customer relationship management tools and staff for a world class service experience, top rated support and responsive sales center
  • Gain ability to offer same business day shipping for both sales and replacement warranties
  • Enhance Sustainability benefits of BioGreenPC by implementing a take back program for responsible disposal when they reach end of life cycle.

Environmental Benefits

Taking our local community as example we can say in the city of Chicago alone, the business computer count is about 1 Million units which are likely to run 24/7.   The average electricity toll of a tower workstation is 100 Watts per hour.  To produce such amount of energy (using coal as example) 1100 tons of coal need to burn every 24 hours. That's about 100 loaded train cars every 24 hours.

Imagine if we could contribute to lower that energy toll to just 110 tons or 10 train cars a day? Since business computers are refreshed every 3 to 5 years, we want to get ready to provide businesses and consumer with computers that are going to help them save money and lower the coal footprint. And your help is of essence.

Our BioGreenPC uses only about 10 to 30 Watts per hour (depending on processor speed and work load) which represents up to 90% savings compared to brand name tower workstations that employ 400 to 650 Watts power supplies as standard.

See how this Desktop computer reaches 100 Watts just to boot up. Not to mention it takes way longer to boot than BioGreenPC

FAQ

Does it replace my computer?

- Yes, the BioGreenPC replaces your tower computer, all you have to do is connect it to your already existing monitor or TV with the included miniDP to VGA adapter (2 monitors supported), it also comes with keyboard, mouse, VESA mount and power supply.

Does it replace my laptop?

- Whereas the convenient size and Solid State Drive allows you to carry it with you everywhere you go without risk of losing data or damaging the drive, it does not have a built in screen, but you can certainly take it with you and plug it into your home TV, a hotel or conference room screen, etc.

Does it come with DVD reader?

- It does not, we are in 2016 :)  but you can add an external USB DVD reader/writer

Does it have a screen?

- It does not come with a screen but easily connects to up to 2 monitors or TV's.

Can it be upgraded?

- Yes, storage can be upgraded with an internal 1TB or  2TB 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD and virtually unlimited extra storage with an external USB drive.

How is it 6 times faster than regular computers?

- We use high quality solid state drives which give you Read speeds up to 550 MB/s whereas a regular mechanical hard drive only can do 50 to 120 MB/s.  Also by including 16 GB on ram instead of 4 like industry leaders, we prevent the unit from using the hard drive as swap storage.

Can I use it as a gaming machine?

- Absolutely, the already included features exceed many modern video games requirements. We suggest to double check if your games are suitable to the built in video card Intel® HD Graphics 520

Why only 240GB on hard drive when other brands include 1 or 2 TB?

- We designed BioGreenPC to be the fastest and most affordable computer your business ever had. We have managed thousands of business computers and know the average storage use per unit is about 80GB since most data stores on servers and employees do not store multimedia files. However if you are a home user or require more storage, you can always add an internal extra drive of up to 2TB or virtually unlimited storage via USB or NAS

Risks and challenges

Pricing fluctuation:

We leave in a global market and prices of components are always fluctuating. Plus, main computer parts are mainly produced overseas, therefore the main challenge is to maintain pricing competitive.
- How will iEple overcome possible pricing fluctuation on materials needed to build BioGreenPC? iEple daily monitors pricing of components and with Kickstarter Support, will be able to score great deals on volume pricing; our corporate experience help us be mindful of sales pipelines and necessary supply. We continuously purchase parts ahead of time, sometimes even prior to meet potential customers so we can guarantee them delivery and security on their deal. Also, due to the convenient size of our BioGreenPC, our storage and shipping overhead has minimum impact on cost fluctuation.

Production Capacity

We have established strong relationship with manufacturers and have weekly meetings to discuss sales pipelines, production goals and shipping expectations. Our supplier are multi million dollar industries with presence in several countries and are committed to maintain necessary supply ready in the US.
