Power efficiency supports ENERGY STAR™ 5.0
The ENERGY STAR 5.0 specifications released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are recognized around the world as a way of identifying energy-efficient PCs and other computer equipment. PCs that meet the ENERGY STAR 5.0 criteria are expected to become increasingly popular with both corporations and consumers. Some corporations are choosing to purchase ENERGY STAR PCs as part of their "green" initiatives. The low power profile of the Deskstar 7K1000.C hard drive enables a reduction in overall system power requirements, which helps PC manufacturers achieve ENERGY STAR ratings.
