Other HP desktops and notebooks, such as HP Pavilion a6360, dv9700, dv6700, dv2700 and tx1000 series, along with the Compaq Presario A9000, F700 and C700 will receive an EPEAT Silver badge and fall under the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR® umbrella.
"HP for decades has been integrating environmentally responsible components and processes across the entire product lifecycle," said Todd Bradley, executive vice president, Personal Systems Group, HP. "We are dedicated to meeting our energy consumption goal of 25 percent reduction by 2010, and these additional EPEAT-Gold registrations exemplify how HP leads the IT market in reducing the environmental impact of its products and business processes."
Thanks to its ultra-efficient 80 PLUS® power supplies, low-energy chipsets and other energy-smart systems, HP has maintained a long line of eco savvy products going back to the HP Compaq rp5700 - the first PC to receive EPEAT's Gold certification.
