NEC PowerMate Eco Computer

Our pals at MetaEfficient turned us on to this. It's the NEC PowerMate Eco, and it's processor runs cool, so it requires no fan; has low power consumption; and has no bulky boxes housing its components. It's simply screen, monitor, mouse, nice and clean-like. It's also one of few PCs to address recycling: the flat screen doesn't contain boron, and uses lead-free solder, which protects both ground water and people reclaiming parts after disposal. Plus, NEC's proprietary plastic is fully recyclable and uses nontoxic flame retardant. $1,600. ::NEC
