Announcing Dell's Cutting-Edge PC Design: Built From Bamboo and Milk Jugs??!

"Dell today unveiled a "never before seen" environmentally conscious computer clad in bamboo, which occupies 81 percent of the space typically taken by a traditional PC tower. While specifications were sparse, Earth2Tech reveals that the computer is made of 70 percent recycled materials, such as old bottles, milk jugs, and detergent cases, and that it would be available later this year for between $500 and $700."



Looks like Dell is attempting to cash in on the push (frenzy) to go "green". I think it's a great idea to use recycled materials, as long as that means the price doesn't become inflated just for being a "green" PC. I'm not a fan of the bamboo finish (hopefully they'll offer some other finishes), but if you want a PC in a Mac mini form-factor, then this might be the PC you're looking for. Would you be willing to dish out $500-$700 (or pay a premium) for an eco-friendly PC?
