A very efficient design by Lenovo, the Chinese PC Maker, has created a low power consuming PC which only runs on a 45-watt AMD Athlon 64X2 dual core and can be powered by an optional solar panel. The energy efficient PC, called ThinkCentre A61e or “Blue Sky” weighs under 8 pounds, is Energy Start 4.0 compliant and has won a EPEAT Gold Rated PC Award.
It starts at just $399 and Lenovo claims a savings of 50% off annual energy costs by making the switch. That’s amazing.
The PC is made from 90% reusable/recyclable materials and that’s including the packaging that it comes into.
