[THG] Greener than an Apple: Cherrypal's $250 PC

post #1 of 4

Seybold believes that the Cherrypal is the greenest PC available. On one side, the PC is rated at a power consumption of only 2 watts and, according to Seybold, uses 80% fewer components than your average PC. However, on the other side, the case of the device is made from standard plastics, which aren’t bio-degradable and just as harmful to the environment as any other PC. But it is the vision behind the system, which may make it "greener": Seybold said that the Cherrypal is good enough to serve as Internet device for about 10 years, but he noted that, realistically, no buyer will keep the device for more than two or three years. In this case, Cherrypal offers its customers to buy the system back and resell it to third-world countries, which hopefully will keep the devices away from landfills for a longer period of time.

Interesting. A $250 computer that will work for the average user most likely.

Its very green, but with all the other stuff (moniter/keyboard etc) its not as green nor as fast as the EEE PC 701, well at least i think thats right tbh.

Apple is notoriously NOT green.... so it is quite easy to beat them. Apple generally falls on the lower end on the annual green reports.
Once again...

It's just a Via CPU's computer.

Its efficiency can almost be matched by an Atom PC, or other small PC, or if you take into account an entire department, or companies computers, it can be beat by a server with thin clients.
