Green Computing: Buy A Laptop Instead of A Desktop Computer

When purchasing you next computer for your home or office, consider getting a laptop. Laptops only use about a third of the energy that it takes to run a desktop computer. Most laptops have outputs that would allow you to display your computer on a large LCD, television, or computer monitor if you would ever need a larger screen. Also, USB ports allow you to connect keyboards and mice if you are at your desk.

In addition to the energy savings you may also benefit from the portability offered by laptops!
