EPEAT's 1000th Eco Label Goes to Sony Vaio Laptop

The Sony VGN-SR290PDB laptop is the lucky recipient of the 1000th EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) label.

EPEAT, which rates computer products based on environmental impact, was launched in July 2006.

Sony's business-oriented machine comes with a 13.3-inch screen, 2.26GHz Intel Core Duo 2 processor and LED back light.

The VAIO laptop received a gold rating in EPEAT's three-tiered labeling system due to its recyclable nature and non-toxic components. Other factors included in EPEAT's rating include product longevity, energy efficiency, and availability of takeback.

The EPEAT system is managed by the Portland, Oregon-based Green Electronics Council.
