The litl webbook gets you online and more. It's an internet computer that works great with your favorite websites. But, the litl also flips over to create a new view of the web. Our intuitive interface and no-maintenance approach make it simple and carefree.
Easy to use
The litl is made for everyone in the family. Just point and click. We've removed all the computery stuff between you and the web - no tabs, menus, icons, or folders.
The litl maintains itself. It handles updates, patches, plug-ins, and fixes, automatically. You get maintenance-free computing and new features for the life of your computer at no additional cost.
The litl is designed to stream photos and display them on the kitchen counter, the bookshelf, the nightstand…you get the picture. When the litl is in easel mode it bends over backward like an easel and takes up little space.
Here's a screen that everyone can view at once by connecting conveniently to the big TV screen in front of your couch. Enjoy larger than life photos and videos. Use the optional remote to flip through your favorite channels.
We take content from your favorite sites such as ESPN, Weather .com, and Facebook and deliver channels that watch like TV. Use the litl's convenient wheel design or remote control to quickly flip through your litl channels.

I just received my Litl from Amazon and set it up.
As both my husband and I are visually impaired and he is a computer phobic, this is great.
It allows me to show him pictures in a size and resolution he can see. He will now be able to watch videos sent to us via email and laugh at some of the stuff shared with us by friends.
It is light enough for him to hod the screen within 4 inches of his face long enough to enjoy.
The Litl is not only for communicating with the computer phobic but for those with limitations. Senior Citizens with no computer experience would profit from this.
The fact that the crew in Boston opened the source so other programs will become available makes me feel like we are about to take a great and wonderful journey.
On the downside, it is underpowered, running on the same chip that early netbooks did, and thus gets bogged down by more than the most basic flash activity. It won't run Skype, or for that matter anything else that can't be accessed via a web browser. It also can't download content such as pictures or songs, and it stutters at Pandora and the most basic of YouTube content. And it's useless without a reliable wifi internet connection.
It was overpriced when initially released at $800, and a year or so later it looked like a detour on the roads to more powerful and more portable devices even at $400. If you can find one in working order for $100 or less, you might be amused at this fascinating attempt to reinvent the home computer for folks that don't really want to be their own system administrator...
This is one of its three main strengths - it's really easy to navigate around the internet. The second is the way it handles photos - you load them onto one of the several photo storage sites like Flickr - and you can display them by flipping the Litl over to become an easel - it looks great and cycles through them like a web picture frame. The easel view can also be used for other things, like some recipe sites, weather sites. There's not a ton of uses yet, but they're adding them every day.
The third thing it does very well is showing things on your tv. It's got an HDMI port, and you just plug it in and can watch Hulu or something else on your tv (if it's got HDMI). It works beautifully. We missed a couple of episodes of Caprica recently, and were able to watch them in high quality with no lag whatsoever.
There are a couple of minor inconveniences with the Litl. Obviously, you can't run software, so if you're doing word processing, you need to use something like Google Docs. But that's the way the world is headed anyway, so it's not the worst thing in the world. It's a trifle inconvenient that it doesn't let you see the wireless strength, so you sometimes don't know that you are losing the signal. Also, you can't see the battery level. I've also found that it's sometimes hard to wake up after it's been sleeping.
But these are quibbles. The Litl is a nifty little machine, that is great for web-based computing.
It has a great screen, making it much better than netbooks for using in the kitchen for recipes etc or as a photoframe, or just sharing things on the web.
I am getting one for my mother, as she is afraid of ordinary computers.
