New Dell PC made from 'bamboo, bottles and jugs'

Comments (1)

dell bamboo.jpgComputer giant Dell unveiled a tiny, bamboo-encased eco computer at green business conference Fortune Brainstorm yesterday.

Said to be Dell's smallest-ever computer (it's about the size of an average external hard drive), the machine is 81 percent smaller than a standard desktop and uses an impressive 70 percent less power. While the casing is bamboo, its innards are apparently 'filled with recycled materials like old bottles, milk jugs and detergent cases'.

CEO Michael Dell said at the conference that the computer should be on the market later this year.

Dell, whose previous 'green' initiatives have included tree planting schemes and a brave attempt at carbon neutrality is ranked '5th greenest' in the Greenpeace consumer electronics scale.
