Whether you’re writing impossible papers or cruising YouTube for the latest version of “My New Haircut” (not that we’ve ever done that …), you have to admit that you’re spending a lot more lunches with your laptop than with someone as important as, say, your significant other. Make that time well spent with the new SONY Vaio FV Graphic Splash Eco Edition Notebook.

Created in four eye-catching designs and slim enough to fit into your cannot-live-without workbag, SONY’s sleek new notebook is not just nice to look at; it also reduces the amount of natural resources used in its creation. In addition to the free-recycling program and RoHS compliant components (meaning they are free of hazardous materials such as lead), SONY has agreed to donate 1 percent of the profits to eco-minded non-profit organizations through 1% For the Planet. Sounds like the start of a wonderful, new relationship.
