Dell Unveils “Green” Bamboo PC

Recently, at the Fortune Green conference, Michael Dell unveiled one of his new babies, an eco-friendly PC made in part out of bamboo wood. Dell says this computer is 81 percent smaller than their regular desktop PCs and uses 70 percent less power. Also, a lot of the computer’s components are made out of recycled materials, such as old bottles and detergent cases. The new product could apparently be released later this year and be priced between $500 and $700.

  1. I hope it's that super-fast growing bamboo from China (you can *hear* it growing!), and not your average a-few-inches-a-year stuff you get in the US. Otherwise, they're going to be cutting down a *lot* of bamboo and not having it replenished nearly quickly enough.

    • No you dolt it's green because Bamboo is a sustainable resource and it's harvest has little impact on the environment.
