New "Green" Toshiba Laptops

This week, Toshiba exhibited the first "green" laptops ever to fully comply with the new environmental RoHS regulations. These rules were put forth by the European Parliament to reduce the use of lead, mercury, and other potentially hazardous chemicals in the production of new electronic equipment. The twin Tecras, the "Tecra S3" and "Tecra M3" are available early, well before the deadline of July 1, 2006. The M3 retails for about $2700 and weighs about 5 pounds. The Tecra S3, with a list price around $2500 is a desktop replacement with a 15" TFT display. :: Toshiba
