Dell’s new Studio Hybrid has received EPEAT Gold, which means the desktop meets all 23 required criteria, plus at least 75% of the optional criteria listed by the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool. The Studio Hybrid is a cool, tiny desktop – about 80% smaller than standard desktops – and it uses about 70% less energy. What little energy it does use is used efficiently, meeting Energy Star 4.0 with its 87% efficient power supply. That adds up to some great savings on electricity over time.
The greenness goes beyond the desktop itself, since the packaging uses 95% recyclable materials, and you can send the machine back to Dell for free recycling using a kit that comes with the system. It’s great to see manufacturers making it so easy for users to complete the loop on their electronics.
And to top it all off, the Studio Hybrid just looks cool – certainly better than the HP or Lenovo Gold-winning desktop PCs. So sleek, you get to pick your favorite color, and it doesn’t take up much space at all. You can pair it up with Lenovo’s EPEAT Gold-winning monitor. Plus it has up to 4 GB RAM and up to 320 GB hard drive. Nice. The downside? One word:
