Dell bamboo PC
Dell today unveiled a "never before seen" environmentally conscious computer clad in bamboo, which occupies 81 percent of the space typically taken by a traditional PC tower. While specifications were sparse, Earth2Tech reveals that the computer is made of 70 percent recycled materials, such as old bottles, milk jugs, and detergent cases, and that it would be available later this year for between $500 and $700.
The eco-friendly computer comes after Dell yesterday announcing plans to hold on to Windows XP distribution rights until approximately 2012 on its mid- to high-end business systems.
