Green Computing can cost a lot more money due to green companies charging high prices for their hardware and computer accessories and desks.  I read somewhere that apparently Laptops are better for the energy consumpton than PCs and proberly cheaper. 

Its a choice and I am no expert.  But some websites that specialise in Green and environmentally friendly products have a lot of computer accessories and office furnishure.  Or get secondhand accessories and office funiture and set it up with a good laptop.

Advantages and disadvantages. Reduced energy usage from green computing techniques translates into lower carbon dioxide emissions, stemming from a reduction in the fossil fuel used in power plants and transportation. Conserving resources means less energy is required to produce, use, and dispose of products.
