Trash Talk – Making a case for laptops…

If you’re planning to buy a new computer, consider getting a laptop or notebook instead of a desktop.

  • Laptops require fewer materials and less energy to produce than desktops
  • Laptops use a fraction of the electricity to run – you’ll save an average of 220 kilowatt-hours per year, and about $20 on your annual electric bill.
  • If one in twenty-three households made its next computer purchase a laptop instead of a desktop, the energy saved could seriously (positively) affect the ‘power grid.’

Think about it!   Will you take a small step to help?
