I don't care much for the green PC segment, as low power consumption usually equates to low CPU power production, but this one is pretty nifty. First of all, it's so energy efficient, with its AMD Athlon X2 Dual-core Processor, that it only takes up 45 watts, and can be powered by an optional solar panel. It's the quietest Thinkcenter PC ever, smaller than the last gen by 25%, and weighs under 4kgs. It also an "EPEAT Gold rated PC" and Energy star 4.0 compliant, but that doesn't really mean anything to any of us who would use such a machine. $US399, and designed for office drones, but man, solar powered PC? I'm stoked.
