A reminder that PCs really aren't environmentally friendly, and a good prompt as to why we shouldn't be blase about our technical consumption - extend the reasoning along all other consumer lines - televisions, washing machines, fridges etc, and just how frequently "cycles" of consumer goods are replaced (built-in obsolescance ignored for the time being). It's also something worth remembering when citing other apparent "green" schemes, such as turning off monitors overnight - there's a lot more to this "technology culture" thing than just hitting a button at the end of the day.
