Green Colored Laptops

Today’s green laptop computers can be found in various shades of green, yet they may also utilize advanced design approaches focusing on the environment, and how green laptop computers can help in this area.



While a relaxing shade of green has a calming effect on some people due to the natural connection to earthy surroundings, green laptop computers can actually be environmentally friendly to a relatively great extent today. There are many key points which must be addressed in order to become green certified though. Battery management and lead free components are just the beginning, and the efforts have been well received among those who use a green laptop.

Laptop computers have recently been trending towards smaller, and more efficient designs for several reasons. For instance, the less materials the laptop is comprised of, the less waste there will inevitably be. There is a conscientious effort being made by laptop manufacturers to address these types of concerns world wide.

With the focus on smaller laptop models like the Samsung N220-11, the advanced features are being designed into colorful laptops, not just boring gray colors. This Sony green laptop uses the 10.1” WSVGA screen with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and resolution of 1024×600. These are very common specifications among the netbook computers currently. Most similar netbook computers will have come with Windows 7 Starter Edition installed, unless specifically upgraded, as the Sony N220-11 on a 250GB hard drive. This netbook computer weighs in at less than 3 lbs keeping it quite lightweight.

Several models fall in between the more traditional laptops, say 17” models, and the smaller netbooks.

Green Colored Laptop

Green colored laptops like the Dell I1440 which uses a 14.1” screen with a maximum resolution of 1366×768 for instance provides more power, yet remains relatively lightweight at approximately 5 lbs. The Sony VAIO VPCY216FX green colored laptop (which also comes in a variety of other colors), is yet another model which at a 13.1” screen size combines a highly portable, lightweight design (just under 4lbs) and relatively powerful components. Designed around the Intel Core i3-330UM and a maximum of 4GB of RAM (system memory) the idea is obviously to supply powerful computing capabilities in a smaller, less wasteful design.


Aside from the colorful green laptops available today, the eco-focused green laptop computers actually have to pass several well established points during their design and production phases in order to be classified as “green” which ultimately means environmentally friendly.

Many of these points may seem rather minor, yet they are based on good common sense, and ultimately add up to making an impressive difference between a “non-green” laptop, desktop computer, or basically any other mass produced electronic device.

One of the points involved in this process actually addresses power consumption.

The processor is made to conserve electricity when it is not being taxed with commands by the laptop computer user. Another is the battery which is designed to actually last longer while interacting with the operating system helping to conserve the energy consumption through power management tactics.

The reduction of power consumption through the efforts of the public and through the use of green devices, meaning environmentally friendly, can be felt by everyone as this contributes to lowering the overall expense of energy costs. This is actually not a new concept, but it has been garnering quite a bit of attention recently due to the economic climate which has many people taking a closer look at energy conservation.
