    Nice to see the whining hippy liberal Greenpeace *******s getting two fingers from someone. I don't normally cheer for Apple, but today I shall.

    I often wonder if Greenpeace poking (or bashing) is a specifically Enthusiast thing or a specifically rainy-island-dweller thing.
    Or maybe it's just generally "in" atm.

    Does anybody think this was planned?

    Think about it, pay greenpeace to knock your product, knowing full well you have a rebuttal planned for it...

    whats that rebuttal do, tells people your computer is actually MORE eco friendly than dell, HP, etc etc... thus your stocks go UP...

    it's possible zero0ne, as we all know that Apple *loves* having control on things.. but it could just be lack of communication.. [shrugs]... hard to know

    According to New Scientist a few weeks back Apple is the worst PC manufacturer as far as the environment is concerned... now do I chose to believe a reputable magazine, or PR from the company itself? Both points of view give rise to opposite extremes, I'm sure in reality they are probably both wrong and it is most likely somewhere in between (I'm still siding with the magazine though :p)!

    What about the fact that everything you buy from apple comes in an extremly thick white cardboard box? Even the little remote that comes with the imacs has its own huge cardboard box when the remote itself is only a few centimeters long.
