Developed in partnership with Intel, Dell Concept Luna is unlike any other laptop, as its components are immediately accessible, replaceable and reusable, thus reducing resource use and keeping even more circular materials in the economy. Rather than focus on a production model, they just wanted to see what was possible. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
However, if all of Concept Luna’s design ideas were to be made into an actual laptop, there would be an estimated 50% reduction in overall product carbon footprint. Some of these ideas include reducing the number of screws needed to access internal components for repair or reuse from hundreds to just four, while the advanced deep-cycle cell battery provides a long charge that can be maintained across many years of use. That’s not all, a bio-based printed circuit board (PCB) is manufactured with flax fiber in the base and water-soluble polymer used as the glue.
- Powerhouse performance from AMD Ryzen 5 5500U mobile processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD storage, and AMD Radeon 7 Graphics
- The IdeaPad 3 14-inch laptop has 4-side narrow bezels that let you see more of the FHD (1920 x 1080) screen for wider viewing angles and less clutter
- Quieter and cooler with intelligent thermals, plus you can calibrate performance with Q-control, with 3 modes to match your performance needs
- Protect your webcam lens and guarantee your privacy with the built-in privacy shutter
- WiFi 6 (2x2 802.11 ax) and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, plus USB, USB-C, and HDMI ports
In the last year alone we introduced closed-loop aluminum from out of use hard drives, bioplastics made from tree waste in the paper making process and scaled our use of reclaimed carbon fiber to over 1.2 million pounds. But we need to find new keys to open new doors to get us there faster. Last year we shared our vision for a parallel innovation workstream to accelerate circular design and today we’re sharing the first prototype from these efforts: Concept Luna,” said Glen Robson, Chief Technology Officer, Dell.
