    £40 a year to run a PC? Isn't a washing machine or tumble dryer or microwave or dishwasher rated higher?

    Possibly, but do you use your washing machine / tumble drier / microwave / dishwasher for 8+ hours a day? :p

    holly crud... ROFLMAOBBQWTFLOL.... this is so stupid. No one is that stupid.
    you want a 0 carbon pc? make one of recycled aluminum and other stuff and use solar, hydro and wind energy, don't kill trees.

    DUMB DUMB DUMB :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

    maybe they are thinking of these vantec tornado:

    I love how they throw in the little part at the end with the third world countries and their powered wells. Do they even know what carbon zero means? 15% of some bs number does not carbon zero make. Oh but of course the wells that power the family well? More likely to power the factory that makes these pieces of crap.

    Those stupid wood cases have been out for a while now (the one the creepy lady is looking at). I was in an article with one :sigh:

    EDIT: And another thing, "carbon zero" has to do with how the pc it built too, including all the components along with what happens when they are thrown away. I may not know much but I know they aren't making the pcbs and crap out of cardboard ergo they numbers are even more BS. Someone slap them for me please?

    And now you're in another article with them LOL! Sorry :blush:

    But this time in a good way.

    DXR - Via processors are great if you use a PC to not actually do anything. Atm we've got a 1.5GHz EPIA on the block and it's 10x slower than a Core 2 board: so if it takes you 10x longer to do the same task is it really more cost effective with power for your monitor, your time, everything else in the room that also has to wait for it?

    I think someone from BT needs to contact their PR team and drop a few probing questions, I'm sure we all want to know more :p

    carbon... credits?

    let me get that one straight. We as a country put out too much carbon, so to satiate our consciences we 'offset' these by claiming that we're actually using the allowance of some other country?!


    HOW THE **** SHOULD THAT EVEN BE ALLOWED TO EXIST AS A CONCEPT!?

    that about sums it up i think

    Lol exactly, although i can see that if we pay to make other developing countries use more efficient ways, so that they do not emit as much carbon, that would make sense
    I mean, a lot of the currently developed countries could cut carbon emissions quite a lot, if we spent the money to fix the things that are currently wrong, however it would cost a lot of money, so its cheaper to do it to developing countries to keep them from making our mistakes

    Perhaps they misinterperated the facts, not realising that while the fans remove waste heat (therefore waste energy, which is a significant amount) removing the fans doesn't fix the problem that the components in the PC are actually wasting a lot of power
