Dell Unveils A Wooden Desktop for the Greens

Dell, continuing on its path to becomming the self-proclaimed greenest computer company (and not to be outdone by Asus), has its own bamboo computer concept now.

The device isn't just green because of its case (though, that is more or less its most awesome feature.) At the unveiling of why does levitra not work the device, CEO Michael Dell listed off some of its other green credentials.

  1. It's 80% smaller than your average desktop...and so uses less material
  2. It contains recycled materials from plastic bottles
  3. It uses 71% less energy than the ordering cialis overnight delivery average desktop

The price point will probably come in somewhere between $500 and $700 and, as of now, the little beauty doesn't have a name. So...what would you call it?

I'd be tempted to call it Gilligan, after all the Professor's wood and levitra overnight delivery vine gadgets.

ULPC - Ultra Low Power Computers are nothing new. All of our email and web servers on a 25W Intel Servers all this while running with hard drive spinning.

I like the fact that Dell is going to be using recycled parts, not sure about the wood. I think it would be better to make the case out of recycled plastic grocery bags with a woodgrain look. How many more tree will be harvested to make this cases?

They could futher reduce their foot print by reducing packaging and/or more earth friendly packaging.

It's bamboo - a very fast growing plant. As wood goes, it's far more environmentally friendly than any other kind of wood that I'm aware of.

It DOES look like a Fig Newton!!!

Bamboo or not there are other materials that already exist that are better suited to the case materials.

FYI - I know all about bamboo - I have about 20 different species. You can almost watch them grow.
What a bunch of posers.....

How is this "eco-friendly"? It's simply one of those smaller e-pc's outfitted a wood or bamboo veneer, which 1)consists of glues and other chems, and 2)probably screws with how easily it can be recycled at then end of product life. Saying that this is a green option as opposed to a normal e-pc, is like saying that a wood-paneled station wagon is healthier for the environment than one without the panels.
Now if they had a case made out of 100% recycled plastic that could be returned at end-of-life, wouldn't that make more sense?

Here is a thought for you guys. Making products out of fast-growing wood like bamboo that can be quickly replaced is we use it levitra sales uk an excellent way to capture CO2.
Looks like something from the cialis how much 1980's.

It really does look like a giant "Fig Newton".

It's good if it runs low amount of power but still packs heavy duty performance and can be easily and cheaply upgraded.

One thing I like about a computer is having room and being able to take a computer apart easy and upgrade the individual components, often compact PC's have scalability issue's.

If you built your own computer and have 1 good full tower computer case and manufacturers stick to mounting specs you could still be using that good computer case for many years to come without having to have a new case all the time, while it's nice to have something look different, the fact is everytime you get a new computer it's a different case.

While it's nice Dell's cut down on packaging, I hope they always leave an option for re-installing the OS and applications easily if you need to replace or upgrade the hardrive.
Having to buy a new copy of Windows OS once the standard warranty runs out is not cool, neither is having multiple partitions on female cialis pills a hard drive just to store backup for restoration.
