That isn't actually true. We have the technology now, its just still quite expensive and no one wants to foot the bill.

but pretty meaningless considering how much extra carbon is being spewed into the atmosphere in order to generate the electricity that keeps the products  Dell manufactures running.

Face it, we're all at fault and we're all doomed. Nothing short of a technological revolution in energy generation within the next decade is going to reverse the global warming trend.

Now if we could just get every Fortune 500 company to do this we might actually be able to save the earth or at least push back the demise of it.

it is about time. I am glad to see a tech company taking the lead on this issue. It will certainly motivate me to purchase from them vs. another vendor.

 I mean that's cool, props to dell. If you help it I guess it's good for the evironment, but personally I wouldn't go crazy to make myself green unless it saved me money somehow down the road. Those light sensors alone prolly saved them a bundle on the electricty bill so I guess it's not too bad.

So how much would our notebooks cost if Dell weren't wasting all its time with this crap?  What.  A.  Scam.

Maybe two or three agos consumers might have had a legitimate beef with the cost/performance ratio when purchasing a notebook, but that's hardly the case today. $500-$600 gets an entry-level machine capable of handling basic chores, and a grand can get a mini-powerhouse. Case in point, I paid less than $1,080 shipped/taxed in late March for an HP DV9700T with the following:

17" Widescreen
Core 2 Duo T9300 (2.5GHz, 6MB, 800MHz FSB)
2GB DDR2-667
2x120GB 7200RPM
8600M GS 512MB
8X DVD Burner w/ Lightscribe
802.11AGN
Windows Vista x64

Not exactly a desktop replacement, but a solid all-around workhouse that didn't break the bank. Granted Dell machines run a little bit higher, but a grand still buys a respectable machine.
