Kari

Thanks for all the links - I was wondering though what is the best way to deal with the information on the hard drives? I have some old equipment that I know I will never have the time to really look at to see what is there and would like to know if you have found a good reliable way to clean that information up before you pass them on.

That green machine chart shifts faster than a blink, gosh, it wasn't that long ago that Lenovo was leading the top tier, (at least when I wrote the "Eco-friendly electronics" post for Shaping Youth springboarding off of Epeat and the other Green Electronics Council linkage you were kind enough to share!)It become a favorite post for many green teens, due to all the links embedded: http://www.shapingyouth.org/blog/?p=584

I've also just plopped a link to your update here in my comments section so thanks!

As far as Kari's question above, I highly recommend reading this CNET article called "Skeletons on your Hard Drive" addressing the issue of data exposure via the NAID (Nat'l Assoc. for Info Destruction; yes there really IS such a thing!)

In other words, don't just count on a 'wipe it clean' software program if you've got tons of passwords, SSN data etc. in this age of identity theft. Clearly it's 'overkill' for an average users' concerns, but useful deconstruction nonetheless!
