Subject: Greening Laptop Use

Today I came across this article http://www.slate.com/id/2205761/

I guess I had never looked at this resource before.  They are
addressing many sustainability/p2 questions.

My question, do you agree with their recommendations on laptop use
and laptops versus desktops.  Is there a current ranking or rating of
the green-ness of laptop and PC products.

I am finding that now more than ever organizations are trying to
address energy saving and are looking for guidance.
