Laptops are generally more environmental friendly than their â€œbig brothersâ€. So if you are planning on getting a new computer you should consider a laptop instead of a stationary (desktop) computer.
A stationary or desktop computer usually uses around 130 watts while a laptop only uses around 15 watts, and sometimes that is with the same tech specs. Other good things are that laptops are smaller and use less packaging, meaning less transport and storage space needed.
Another good option besides a laptop is Zonbu, the first zero-emissions personal computer.
