Go green with the Advent Eco PC

Every smug eco warrior knows that green gadgets are where it’s at. But fortunately you don’t need to eschew soap and carp on about ‘The Man’ to buy PC World’s awesome new Advent Eco PC. Just a going concern about saving the planet and a love of saving money will do.

The new machine, which you can nab from today, packs in a self–cooling system without using a fan, keeping power down to just 25W. That’s less than your average non–green light bulb, which takes up a relatively hefty 60W.

But what about the PC itself? Surely it’s bobbins? Well, no. You get a Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a 160GB HDD. Plus Vista Premium, but let’s gloss over that shall we.

PC World reckons that if you leave the Eco PC in energy saver mode, it’ll cost you just £8 a year to run. Seeing as you’re probably being given a seeing to by the electricity board at the moment, that’s a corking deal.

The whole thing tots up to £599. Which if you ask us is awesome. Green and one for the credit crunch? It’s definitely a goer.
