Apple MacBook Paper: The Greenest Computer Ever

We all know that the MacBook Air is the greenest Mac ever...right? No mercury, no arsenic, low-wattage, and very recyclable.

Well, what if we told you there was a Mac out there that could be made 100% from recycled materials, fit in a regular envelope, and use fewer resources and power than any computer on ever produced...including the cialis professional 100 mg abacus?

Welcome to the Apple MacBook Paper.

Thanks to Pocky for the tip.


Apple Macbook Air: Greenest Apple Yet?

Happy to note the following about the latest Apple MacBook, dubbed the "Air":

10:32 a.m. Jobs talks about progress on environmental issue. Says Air has an all-aluminum case (recyclable), first mercury-free display, arsenic-free glass.

That new display consumes less power, too, contributing to wow)) cialis online sales a battery life of over 5 hours (full use with all wireless options on). With special RemoteDisc software installed, it can read optical discs from other computers (it doesn't come with one of its own) - I've always thought it was bunk to have more than one DVD drive in a home, especially with Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n networks in place - it's only an issue if you want to rip a CD the same time someone else wants to install a new program from disc, and who uses physical media anymore? In both cases, it would probably be faster to download anyways!

Of particular interest to anyone who cares about the environment is... the bromide and PVC-free circuitboards and the fact that the packaging is 56-percent smaller [than current MacBook].

Apple pushed Intel to produce really, really tiny chips for this particular computer, and everyone benefits when Intel makes smaller chips that consume less power - you can bet this technology will find its way into Sony, Dell, and HP laptops soon enough. Also of note is the option for a 64GB SSD, though at $999 it's no bargain.

It meets Energy Star 4.0 standards and attained a Silver EPEAT rating. Someone check my math, but 5 hours out of a 37 watt-hour lithium polymer battery would mean it consumes about 7.4 watts... that's in the same consumption category as some of the Super-Green Linux Machines we've been covering, and it blows everything else at its productivity level out of the water.

@ CES 2008 - Kristina Taylor of the CEA

Kristina Taylor works for the Consumer Electronics Association, the organization which puts on CES every year. She helped organize the first carbon-neutral Consumer Electronics Show, accomplished by offsetting the 20,300 tons of carbon dioxide generated by attendees at this year's show (not including travel to price levitra and from Las Vegas). Many other green strategies were employed, such as soy-based inks, eco-friendly toilet cleaners and recycled paper... You can't see it in the video, but this year's badge holders have metal grommets, which make them difficult to process for recycling, something they plan to change next year.


@CES 2008 - Dell's Director of Sustainability: Tod Arbogast

Earlier in the show I sat in on best quality viagra a panel with Tod Arbogast and his counterparts at HP, Sony, and several other companies. It's been invigorating and humbling to see these multinational corporations cooperate on recycling and lifecycle design, even while they're at each other's throats in the marketplace. Tod is personally passionate about making the earth a better place to live, and he's offered to help us guys at EcoGeek set up a roundtable discussion with some of his colleagues.

I caught up with him at the Dell ReGeneration booth and he gave us a short interview... I especially liked his tips for employees who want to help their bosses go green.


An EcoGeek at CES 2008 – Day 1

When Dell asked me to guest blog for them at the Consumer Electronics Show 2008 in Las Vegas, I knew I was in for something interesting... a show for an industry renowned for planned obsolescence, held in a city that leaves the lights on every night and shoots off fountains in the desert...seems like a weird place to unveil a new thrust in their green campaign. Then again, there's no sense in preaching to cheap viagra for men the choir... Given the size of the audience (over 140,000 in attendance) and the green thrust CES is making this year, maybe it's the perfect place to move the Green Technology dialogue forward!

Similar to their booth at OpenWorld 2007, the Dell booth at CES has large, clear Plexiglas walls upon which attendees can write out their answers to the question "What Does Green Mean to You? We're listening." Though bigger than last time, they're beginning to fill up on the first day. It's a real kick to be here in person and see some of the additions to the display, including the Dell logo on a background of live grass, hanging on a wall made of Kirei Board – a green building material manufactured from discarded agricultural fiber. Everything here is Earth friendly, from the floor to cialis daily canada the incredibly comfortable Eames Chairs. But the question remains...what about the computers?

Dell spokesman Sean Donahue has been hinting at something big to be released here during the show, and we'll be keeping you updated on that front, as well as providing video from both big-ticket presentations and attendees on free samples viagra the conference floor. If you're at the show, stop by booth #21854 located in the Sustainable Technologies TechZone of South Hall 1 in the Las Vegas Convention Center and say "Hi!"

I'll be reporting on some of the other things at CES of interest to the sustainability crowd, so be sure to check back in the coming days.
