This week, HP announced the greenest computer ever – the RP5700 [2], and was awarded the first “gold” rating by EPEAT [3]. How does HP make it to gold? First, by redesigning for end of life – 95% of components are recyclable, and the internal chassis can be taken apart by hand [4] with no need for special tools for easy disassembly. Toxic and hazardous materials have been eliminated to meet the EU’s tight regulations, and both the plastic casing and external cardboard packaging source a percentage of post–consumer waste [5].
