The new Bing laptop was announced as the first truly green netbook at the Sundance Film Festival by its manufacturer Cherrypal. The Bing has a 10.2" TFT screen with 1024 x 600 wide-screen resolution and is powered by the Intel Atom N270 processor.

This netbook comes with 1 GB DDRII memory, a 160 GB hard drive, 3 USB 2.0 ports, an SD/MMC/MS card slot, built-in Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11 b/g), microphone, dual speakers, and a 1.3MP web camera. The battery is claimed to last for 5 hours.

Cherrypal offers a free managed cloud computing service called CherrypalCloud for this device that is paid for by advertising. This service can be accessed via a Web based interface and offers secure data storage, virus protection, software installation and updates.

The Bing runs on a Linux based operating system called GreenMaraschino that includes many free applications such as Firefox,, video and music players, instant messaging software and more.

The objective of the Green Maraschino open source initiative is to provide an open platform for ultra-low power computing, from silicon to super-cloud architecture.

Until Jan. 25th 2009 there was a special two-for-one deal including both the Bing netbook and the CherryPal C114 desktop computer, which is about the size of a paperback book (1.3" x 5.8" x 4.2") for $399. The Bing is announced to ship in March 09.
