Tread lightly with Greener Computer Hard Drives and Desktops

The Studio Hybrid from Dell is more flexible than a typical desktop product. Dell's new Studio Hybrid is an anywhere-you-want-it desktop product with green product development features. Dell's smallest desktop computer looks great in the living room, on the desk or anywhere else space is at a premium.

Dell recently described their product development process: "In today’s world, the development of manufactured products is often a complex affair that traverses the globe. Not only are manufactured products themselves becoming increasingly sophisticated, but the companies that make such products increasingly rely on geographically distributed development organizations to help design them. To be successful in a global environment, however, a company must efficiently and effectively manage product development both within and across its design facilities. Failure to do so can lead to delayed product releases, missed market opportunities, and ultimately lost revenue."

Dell introduced the desktop computer product in late 2008 with the following green product development design elements:

  • This Dell is about 80% smaller than standard products
  • The Studio Hybrid uses about 70% less power than a typical product
  • Dell's packaging for this product is 95% recyclable and has reduced materials and printed documentation due to advanced green product development techniques
  • The product includes a system recycling kit which is becoming standard in the green product development process
