Looking for an ethical laptop?

Ethical Consumer has released the most comprehensive ethical buyers’ guide
to laptops and netbooks. The guide brings together work from a number of key
NGOs such as Greenpeace and the Enough Project alongside their own research. This unique report ranks twenty six I.T. brands across twenty three ethical categories, to give you all you need to know about the relative ethics of each company.

Longevity seems to be built into Apple Macs

Ten years old and its still going! Powerbook G4, just replaced with MacBook Pro

I’d like them to include product longevity into the mix too, having spent
most of my working days in front of Macs, which just keep on going and
going. It astonishes me when my PC colleagues have to replace their
computers due to performance issues, which probably have nothing to do with
the hardware itself. Macs just seem to outlast most Windows driven computers
in my experience.

Apple’s operating system appears to be more energy efficient too, when you
consider that the Mac mini has been top of our efficiency charts for the last two years – despite it using the same Intel processors as its PC cousins.
