NYT: refurb computers

One last (planned) post on my current computer situation. The New York Times ran a story today about major computer manufacturers offering reduced-cost refurbished computers — from returns shortly after an initital purchase, mainly — and a new electronic environmental rating systems for changes in manufacturing. Plus a note on computer recycling.

This is a good article to have in your files (I keep them as PDFs these days) when trying to make a point about responsible computer purchasing.
