“According to the company’s recently released product environmental report, Apple’s redesigned Mac Pro is far more environmentally friendly than the previous-generation models,” Nathanael Arnold reports for Wall St. Cheat Sheet.
“Apple reduced the overall environmental impact of the product by improving energy efficiency, using fewer materials to build the product, and reducing the amount of packaging,” Arnold reports. “According to Apple, the new Mac Pro only consumes 43 watts in idle mode, 68 percent less power than the last model. As noted by VentureBeat, the previous model used 134 watts in idle mode. This efficiency upgrade allowed the new Mac Pro to surpass the stringent ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Computers Version 6.0.”
“According to Apple, the round Mac Pro is one-eighth the volume of the previous box-shaped version,” Arnold reports. “The Mac Pro’s dramatic size reduction is reflected in the overall decrease in the amount of materials used to make it. The new Mac Pro was made with 74 percent less aluminum and steel compared to the previous model.”
