APPLES LATEST promotion of what it calls the 'greenest laptop range ever' is entirely spin for the intellectually-challenged fan base which believes whatever fantasy is manufactured for them by Mac Marketing.
After we ran our story pointing out that the new aluminium laptops are as green as a red V6 Jag with a faulty exhaust, Greenpeace have woken up to agree.
It said that Apple deserves credit for eliminating brominated flame-retardants (BFRs) and other toxic plastics and managing relatively low power consumption.
However Greenpeace says the company's lack of providing a timeline in phasing out other potentially harmful compounds used in the laptops and their production is one of its key problems.
Greenpeace gave Apple a failing rating of 4.3 out of 10 because it needs to commit to phasing out additional substances with timelines, improve its policy on chemicals and its reporting on chemicals management.
We don't quite know why Apple failed to notice that Apple's new laptop range is made out of aluminium which takes so much electricity to create that it has a carbon footprint the size of Texas.
Jobs' Mob claimed it made it easier to recycle, but it also requires a lot of power to do that. µ
