There comes a time when you have to stop chasing performance and start making good for the environmental damage you've caused -- or do you? NEC's latest Mate desktop offers 30% boosted efficiency over previous models despite offering better performance with Core i5 or i7 processors, consuming just 23 watts thanks to a redesigned motherboard and the use of SSD. It also features greater use of recyclable components and a shell composed of environmentally friendly yet flame-retardant plastic -- important when your power supplies have been known for their explosive personalities. NEC is also announcing the new VersaPro VD laptop (pictured after the break), similarly equipped with Intel's latest, and offering a new software tool for tracking energy consumption to "increase user awareness of energy saving." Knowing is half the battle, friends.
