Dell has been called many things lately by resellers, but environmentally friendly isn't necessarily one of them. But the vendor has now gone to great lengths to produce one of the greenest PC offerings in the market.
The chassis for Dell's Optiplex range of PCs has been designed to be recycled and reused. The idea is that this approach will cut down on the number of PCs that are thrown away each year. Research in the US suggests that US companies scrap about 10 million PCs each year.
Maurice Cowey, Dell vice president of European marketing, said that the company was trying to slow down the disposal rate of PCs.
'In addition to helping companies in an environmentally safe manner, Dell is now working to reduce future waste of discarded computers by changing its entire line of Optiplex corporate PCs to a recyclable chassis,' said Cowey.
'This is extremely good news for Dell and its customers, as well as the environment.'
The environmentally friendly Optiframe chassis design was originally introduced on the Optiplex GXPro machine in May, and was moved across the range to the GXi and Gs machines in November.
