NEC PowerMate Eco

Lead, barium, boron, cobalt-these are just a few of the toxic substances that make up the average desktop computer, 10 million of which will end up in landfills worldwide this year. To lessen the impact on the environment, NEC has developed the PowerMate Eco. It’s made from 100 percent recyclable plastic, contains virtually no toxic substances, and requires just one-third the power of other PCs. An Eco with a 900MHz Crusoe processor, 20GB hard drive, and 15-inch display costs $1,599.
