Carbon-Neutral Computer Update

Carbon-Neutral Computer Update

Jul 24, 2007

No pretty prototype pictures to show you yet, but more info about the carbon-neutral computer has been released. The biggest news is that it will be ready to run Windows Vista; in the past, Linux has been the main choice for greener computers because it requires less power to operate.

It will be housed in a recycled aluminum case, which will also act as a heatsink for the processor so as to avoid a fan, and the keyboard, mouse and screen casings will be made from sustainably harvested wood. The power components will be on the outside of the casing so as to further cool parts without the use of a fan.

The computer is being produced in England, and is supposed to be ready in October, with a retail price of about US$800 and the monitor costing an additional US$200.
