HP Showcases Very Green Compaq Business Desktop

HP, as usual given the large size this computer manufacturer is, had plenty to showcase at the Consumer Electronics Show. Among all of the desktop computers mentioned, one stood out which look to be more eco-friendly then the rest. It is a business focused model, but one could envision it easily being used in the home for those who so desire.

On the desktop PC side is the new HP Compaq 8000f Elite Ultra Slim Desktop PC, said by HP to be the first Windows desktop PC to be free of harmful brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) chemicals “from the wall to the mouse.”
