New Energy Star Requirements

The EPA has just upgraded the energy star requirements for PCs. It's the first upgrade since July of 2000 for the standard. The article I read made it seem like a joint announcement with Intel, who is clearly the worst offender when it comes to processor power usage. The spec is here, the list of qualified computers is here. Guess who makes most of the computer on the list? Our old friend Apple, who Greenpeace just bashed up a bit for being non-eco friendly. The irony abounds.
