Apple Laptops Get a Green Makeover
Everybody's buzzing about Apple's brand new MacBook. Inside the Mac notebooks' updated, chic design is one of the greenest laptops in the industry, according to Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs, who highlighted the company's commitment to advancing sustainable technology in his 2008 Environmental Update.
The MacBook's all-aluminum case and glass screen are recyclable. All internal components are BFR- and PVC-free and Apple eliminated mercury and arsenic from the MacBook display as part of its commitment to phase out the use of toxic chemicals.
The new MacBooks are lighter and slimmer, allowing a 41% cut on packaging and decreasing the carbon footprint of the product's entire life.
The MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air may be pricier than other laptops but by minimizing its impact on the environment, Apple's products are all the more attractive.
