Cased in wood, the I Am Eco PC is the world's most eco-friendly computer.

As forest-lovers and wood furniture makers we couldn't help notice "I Am Eco", the new environmentally friendly PC by the Irish company, MicroPro Computers.

Leave it to the Irish (I AM O'NEIL, by the way) to create a PC made of wood!  At first I figured the idea was dreamed up and photoshopped late at night in a pub but then I realized it's all true.

IAMECO is the world's most environmentally friendly PC that's wholly sustainable, with a carbon footprint 70% less than conventional computers. IAMECO is built with 100% recyclable materials and uses LED lighting that's 40% more energy efficient than it's predecessors. 

No fans are used for cooling, rather heat sinks are employed with the bonus of eliminating noise.  IAMECO is a touchscreen PC, and certainly seems to be unprecedented in terms of eco-friendliness. 

Maybe I can convince Douglas to buy one for our new showroom?  We'll see… cost, memory, speed and other specs haven't been released yet but I plan to keep an eye on that.  I AM ECO will be available in September.
