Fujitsu’s netbook first to score GreenTech approval
by David Masters
June 5, 2009
Eco-conscious gadget geeks will be relieved to discover they can finally buy a netbook without feeling guilty.
The Fujitsu M2010 is the first mini-laptop to achieve PC Magazine’s “GreenTech Approved” award.
Most netbooks have a low energy footprint and easily meet energy consumption requirements specified by Energy Star – so they have to be extra special to achieve Greentech status.
The M2010′s green specialities include energy consumption 30% below the maximum specified by Energy Star.
It’s also certified to EPEAT Gold Standard and RoHS, meaning that Fujitsu has a recycling programme in place, and does not use hazardous chemicals in the M2010′s production process.
On the downside, the M2010 has a smaller keyboard, shorter battery life and higher price tag than many other netbooks.
