very interesting. thanks for the link. fanless, low power, SFF...it's like they're reading my mind! CPU probably VIA or AMD, the Intel ULV chips probably too expensive at this price point.
i would think of celeron M? I can't see them using that 9w sempron- 1ghz would scare too many people off with its low speed (and the fact they are not used to low-speed k8s).. a geode or something is surely pretty much out of the question (it says it uses 40W, not 14) and a c7 would be less powerful and less familiar than a celeron M. getting cheap motherboards shouldn't be a problem for someone doing PC world's volume.
PC World, claim [it] is the UK's first truly carbon-neutral mass-market PC
now, i don't really get how any PC can be considered carbon-neutral. or pretty much any of the activities which are endlessly reffered to as carbon-neutral.
PC World also intends to offset the carbon emitted in the production and delivery of the machines, and plans to offset some of its customers' carbon emissions by giving them an energy-saving light bulb or two.
hahaha, because everyone considering a carbon neutral, low-power PC wouldn't already have considered getting low energy light bulbs
they could have atleast done the 'plant some trees' thing. "yes sir, or you could just buy this nice presscott pc, we'll give you this house full of energy-saving lightbulbs. and it will even lower your heating bills."
there are no instruction manuals - everything has been put on CD
amen. i wish they would make them a free option with *everything*. I'm sure there are a huge number of people who would be quite happy getting them off the internet. (which i personally prefer anyway due to lack of bulk)
The screen, mouse and keyboard casing are made from sustainable [wood] felled in Africa, Germany and the US.
er not so E.F. to ship loads of wood from africa or the US is it?.
i want to see an LED backlit display too, aint gonna happen though. ultimately, whilst its a long way from perfect, u can't knock them as no one else is doing it better..
