Compact Performance

Thelio occupies about as much desk space as a sheet of paper. Its small size makes room for more notes, contraptions, inspirations, and new ideas. The upgradeable interior, on the other hand, gives you room to grow.

Elevate your skills with a reliable system that keeps out of your way. Teach your kids the ins and outs of open source software. Hand the keyboard to Grandma so she can checkmate robots like a sage. Thelio is easy to use, for both everyday users and budding engineers.

Host Virtual Game Nights

Fire up Steam or Lutris for access to thousands of multi-player games. Save Earth, win the crown, or cast Uncle Dave out into the void. He was acting awfully suspicious at lunch.

Grow your STEM Career

Rigid aluminum is cut, powder coated, and molded into a light, durable chassis. From the subtle mountainscape to the Solar System exhaust vent commemorating the UNIX Epoch, Thelio adds elegance and character to your desk. Personalize it with natural or stained wood veneer options.
