Oregon Company Announces Green PC

Computer Technology Link, the Oregon electronics maker, has defied its boring name and come out with a green desktop PC. According to its makers, the Meridian SL700 uses 15 to 25 percent less energy than your typical desktop, has a lead-free Intel motherboard, and comes in reduced packaging that is designed for easy recycling. Dell and NEC have both released their own versions of green computers, and with this addition, the category expands. CTL also offer free recycling of your old machine that the new one replaces, which in turn comes with a coupon for its own recycling at the end of its useful life. The power supply for this computer is 80 Plus certified, a program that guarantees high efficiency in electronic power supplies—perhaps a useful piece of the puzzle Collin has been solving regarding power supplies and power strips. :: CTL
