Are laptops a positive or negative for the green movement?

It is not immediately obvious whether laptops should be embraced or chastised when it comes to their green credentials.On the one hand laptop are responsible for lot of electrical waste which doesn’t bio degrade well at all.Laptop chargers and laptop screens, as well as full finished with laptops are working their way into landfills and are not being properly disposed of – a fact which has prompted recent government action.Some laptops are not very energy efficient and the laptop chargers of old also had poor energy efficiency performance when compared to other electrical household items.

However, laptops are increasingly allowing people to work from home.This reduces peoples’ necessity to commute and the creation of e-networks with people working from home reduces congestion and therefore pollution on our roads.If laptops can reduce the stress on our road network in a small way by allowing more people to work remotely, this should be seen as a positive.Laptop Power UK is committed to helping our customers get the best possible use out of their laptop hardware, and our supply of laptop chargers and laptop screens helps people to repair their existing laptop instead of simply replacing it.

Any policy towards the environment, must have the transport network to some degree at its centre.Our contention is that laptops can be a key tenant in allowing people to work from home and reduce the daily strain on our motorway network.E-conferences are another example of how technology can aid the environment instead of hindering it.Whether you need an Acer aspire charger or a Toshiba Satellite adapter we, at Laptop Power UK, can help you get the maximum out of your laptops and netbooks.
