umm..by your account then it is equally as 'cheap' to dump a bamboo laminated PC in the ocean... If the laminate on the biodegradable unit were to actually degrade (which is extremely negligible), then you still have a PC being dumped into the ocean. The benefit of aluminum is that even if you chuck it out..the recyclers will salvage it.

it should be biodegradable not just recyclable to be eco friendly, i doubt if more than 10% will get ever recycled it is still cheaper to dump these macs into ocean

Ramses.... News flash.. Aluminum can be RECYCLED.

this is again very eco unfriendly, they should use only bamboo like Dell recently tried in one of their PC

Water jets are used to cut carbon fiber or fiberglass panels, laser is used to cut thin layers of metal or for engraving metalic parts. I do not think that the case is cut out of a solid piece of aluminum using the lasers and water and you do not mill aluminum to that kind of thickness for a computer case it makes no sense and would have prohibitive costs. In my opinion they are using water jets and/or lasers to cut out the holes and laser to engrave logos etc on the case. A clever design could make for a screwless case, nothing to do with one piece case or whatever. For me the case is pressed like all other cases just the cutting, engraving are different.
