Dell Concept Luna: The sustainable laptop designed to ‘recreate’



Dell revealed its new Concept Luna, a proof-of-concept laptop that aims to reduce its impact on the environment with a focus on repairability, sustainability, and the goal to reduce its carbon footprint by an estimated 50%. “Use, reuse multiple times and then recycle” is this laptop’s motto.

Designed to push the boundaries of what sustainable technology can be, Concept Luna makes repairing easy to prolong its lifecycle — simplifying disassembly. Instead of using hundreds of screws to fit different components, Dell has reduced the number of screws needed to access internal components to four. In fact, the company claims this reduces the time for reapair by around 1.5 hours. 

Everything from the keyboard to the display can be taken out without the need for tools, but this isn’t the only major change the laptop introduces. It’s fitted with a smaller, advanced deep-cycle cell battery with a long charge that can be maintained across many years and a motherboard with a 75% total area reduction that’s estimated to reduce the laptop’s carbon footprint by 50%.
