PC World is hoping to entice shoppers with their new 'green' PC, due to go on sale this autumn. Much of it will be made from recycled materials, and the company also say they will plant trees to offset the carbon produced from the manufacturing process, and advise customers on the most energy-efficient way to configure their new PC.
I'm not entirely convinced. Leaving aside any dislike for PC World as a place to shop, there's the question of whether planting trees to offset carbon emissions really helps. Would it be better to recycle old computers ourselves and make sure we save energy as much as possible, or is this a step in the right direction? we'll keep you updated once the product launches.
