Many who peddle electronics have cleaned up their act. Still, many technology companies have been accused of greenwashing.

Saturdays DomPost has a handy green electronics article strangely positioned within the indungence supplement (not online). The article refers to the March review of consumer electronics undertaken by Greenpeace.

Little known Lenovo rank 1 and good old Apple have dug in at last place.

Article recommendations from an energy efficiency perspective include:
:: Use rechargeable batteries
:: Go laptop over desktop
:: LCD beats CRT

On the waste side of things the usual no-brainers apply; avoid excess packaging and use recycled paper. But this little gem snuck in late: "Vodafone recycles the plastics in its phones as orange traffic cones". Nice.
