There is nothing more frustrating than spending your hard earned money on an item, like a laptop, just to find out that in a few years it has become obsolete. With the launch of newer products and new technology these expensive items don’t always have the life expectancy we want them or need them from them. Developers are trying to address this problem with designing new systems that don’t need to be replaced with new ones, but instead can be made new by using better components.

Dell has partnered with designer Jacko Chan to create such a machine that won’t become outdated. The Loop is a computer that comes in a handful of easy-to-assemble, component-based parts, that you rent instead of buy. When a component becomes outdated it gets replaced through Dell’s rental system. All the parts are recyclable which keeps are landfills free of our old gadgets.
All the components can be easily assembled as there are no screws holding it together. The disassembly takes less than 30 seconds and is done by the company’s engineer group. The computer minimizes on waste and is compact to save on space. For cooling purposes,there are ventilation holes in the front of the machine and a cooling fan located in the back portion of the machine. This will keep the machine well ventilated and help save energy by using less power.

The Dell Loop has a modern sleek design to it that makes this desktop computer very appealing to the eye. The fact that it will never go out of style and won’t end up in the landfill gives it high marks for the green factor. As of now the Loop is not on the market, but when it is available you will be able to order it online and have it shipped directly to your home.
