The OLPC is Almost as Green as an Abacus

Remember awhile ago when we said we thought the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) XO laptop was the greenest laptop by a factor of 10? OLPC seems to have cooked up some actual data of its own, now claiming it is the cialis england world's "most energy-efficient and only today cialis available in india environmentally friendly laptop, based on independent evaluations and data."

While it's hard to say if this is actually true or not, the XO does seems to have ranked up an impressive set of eco-credentials. OLPC says it is in full compliance with the European Union’s RoHS standards, has qualified for Energy Star 4.0 Category A and has received the US PC and notebook environmental ratings agency EPEAT Gold rating.

"In developing the XO laptop, OLPC had the goal of creating a child-friendly educational tool that inspires creativity and learning for children all over the world," said Mary Lou Jepsen, chief technology officer at OLPC. "But equally important for us was to visit web site viagra for women produce a laptop that could be used in remote areas with unreliable or limited energy sources. The result is a laptop computer that has more than 10 times less environmental impact than the average laptop computer. It’s the greenest laptop ever made, and that's not just its color."

OLPC says its laptop uses just a single watt of electricity when idle and can also operate on human-generated or solar energy to power it. There's also a whole bunch of other marketing mumbo, but you get the viagra aus usa general idea: this laptop seems to be about as green as you can get. That is, of course, unless you are using an abacus.

Especially if you build the abacus in India, ship it to the US via Singapore, drive it to a warehouse, leave it to age for eighteen months then individually wrap it up and fly it back to India for actual use. :)

It'd be cool if it could run off a humdinger or at least be recharged by one.

I've never been this excited about a gadget. This thing is awesome. I use it everyday, e-reader, taking notes in meetings, writing things up on the Metro (the DC subway) ... I get looks and levitra online I don't care... I want people to look and wonder... I've already directed tones of folks to the website. I'm going to see about writing some activities for it (their concept of an application)... :D

This thing is awesome. Plain and Simple.
