There were three surprised when I recently ordered an Apple Macbook Pro. The first was how good the industrial design is compared to any PC laptop I’ve had. The second was getting a FedEx tracking number – straight from Shanghai. The third was how big the carbon footprint of this svelte machine is.

Here it is, perched on a massive granite stair that took prybars, Egyptian pyramid-building techniques, and considerable sweat to place (not to mention the negative contribution to my kids’ vocabulary). The two bigger blocks: about 370kg (over 800 pounds). The Mac’s lifecycle carbon footprint: 350kg (2/3 manufacturing & transport, 1/3 use).
