I think it is unfair that when green tech gadgets get reviewed, the reviewer will inevitably emphasize how low the specs of the machine are and give it lower points or star ratings because of that, without giving it additional brownie points for being green. I guess gadget makers will just need to work harder to bring us greener yet more powerful machines, while consumers keep pounding their doors to keep demanding them to be made. The latest to launch green PCs is Samsung Korea, which showcased the MV100 Tower and MZ100 Slim Tower only a few days ago.
Samsung's new machines consume only 60W when used in power-saving mode and that's pretty amazing even though it is not the lowest in the market. I don't know the exact specs for these Samsung PCs, so I can't compare.But the CPU casings are black and mean-looking, which mean I assume it is more powerful than any on the EarthFirst chart.
The lowest energy sipper is still the CherryPal which my colleague wrote about here. It uses CherryPalCloud which helps you save information on the Internet, so you will never need that much harddisk space anyway. So which green PC (on the chart and off) appeals to you most?
