HP today made its strongest gesture yet towards green computing through the dx2020. The system builder boasts that the mini-tower is genuinely carbon-neutral thanks to its processor. Rather than depend on a typical AMD or Intel chip, the PC uses a 1.5GHz Via C7-D that draws 20W of power even at peak consumption. This is especially useful in the developing Chinese market where the PC is currently headed, HP says.
Prices are unknown but should also be relatively low, as the base system starts with 256MB of RAM, FreeDOS, an 80GB hard drive, and a 52X CD reader. Options also exist for 1GB of RAM, Windows XP, a 160GB hard disk, and a DVD drive.
