Mac Pro is not only eco-friendly, but energy efficient too

According to Apple’s environmental report, the company’s new Mac Pro is not only environmentally friendly, but weighs less and consumes less power than its predecessor. The device weighs 84% less than its predecessor and uses 68% less power when idle. 

Apple’s new Mac Pro might set you back a hefty $2,999, but the company has taken steps to ensure that Mother Nature won’t be taking as dramatic a hit as your wallet. In an environmental report released on Thursday, Apple revealed that the new design consumes far less power than its predecessor, and it’s packaged and designed with eco-friendliness and recycling in mind. It all starts at the electrical outlet: The new Mac Pro consumes approximately 68 percent less power when idle than its predecessor — a mere 43 watts, versus the older model’s 134 watts. Power consumption under load will vary, but its power supply is also slightly more efficient than the previous model, and newer energy-sipping components like flash storage and Intel Xeon E5 CPUs should prove more power-efficient than those in previous Mac Pros.
