The Recompute was designed to be a ‘Full life cycle’ PC; eco-friendly in materials, manufacture processes and subsequent disposal.
But cardboard… fo real?
The cases are made using recycled moisture resistant cardboard in a design harnessing the ‘corrugated’ folds for adequate ventilation. It’s held together with non-toxic ‘white glue’ and coated in NASA-grade non-toxic flame retardant, making it sustainable, stylish and safe.
The Recomute is available to buy with Ubuntu 10.04 pre-installed. The dual-core 2.2ghz, 2GB RAM and 250GB HDD set-up will set you back $499.95.
The case alone sits amongst the line up for $199, whilst two Windows 7 models – with higher specs – round out the top tier.
