Environmental Benefits of EUROCOM Low Power Portable PCs:
Eurocom Corporation, a leader in the Desktop Replacement notebook technology since 1989, has responded to the green computing initiative launched by Canadian government to address the growing problem of high energy consumption, by offering its customers low power computing solution. The EUROCOM line of low power and small footprint Portable PC systems featuring 15-inch, 17-inch and 17-inch widescreen, has been designed as green computer solution by offering users numerous environmental benefits including high energy savings, no screen radiation, lower landfill requirements when disposing, as well as all-in-one integrated, functional, customizable and fully upgradeable design to meet individual computing requirements of environmentally conscious government, corporate and general users.
As everybody experiences higher cost of energy and interruptive blackouts, governments are looking into more energy efficient solutions such as environmentally friendly "green" building and house construction, green computing, etc. Energy conservation has become not only part of global environment conservation efforts embodied by Kyoto Agreement and various local initiatives, but also a social issue. The recent initiatives of Canadian federal government to centralize "green projects" and move into "green purchasing" to help implement the objectives of Kyoto Agreement brought a heightened awareness of the green computing issue to the general public.
Eurocom Corporation has been providing low power energy efficient computing solutions to its customers for years. Low power was always part of Eurocom R&D specifications becoming a standard feature of EUROCOM Portable PC system design.
EUROCOM Portable PCs - Green Desktop Replacement Computing
Eurocom Portable PC technology will provide significant energy conservation savings over traditional desktop PCs. For example, a company with one thousand installed workstations will save approximately $100,000 dollars per year in energy expenses related to IT equipment. Since EUROCOM Portable PC systems use only 160 Watts while conventional desktop PC computers consume 500 to 600 Watts, the result will be $100 savings per one computer system. The Canadian federal government currently uses 35,000 desktop PC workstations, so we can easily calculate that EUROCOM low power computing solution will save government $35 million a year in energy costs. For individual computer users choosing Portable PC technology over traditional desktop computers, the main benefit will be lower energy bills and great money savings especially during summer months when their air conditioning bills soar.
