Not to sound like too much of a tree hugger or anything, but I was wondering if anything has changed with the new models from an "environmentally friendly" perspective? I didn't save a screen shot of the tech details for the old models. Here is the environmental specs of the new models.

iMac is designed with the following features to reduce its environmental impact:

Arsenic-free display glass
BFR-free
PVC-free3
Highly recyclable aluminum and glass enclosures
Meets ENERGY STAR 5.0 requirements
Rated EPEAT Gold4

for all the nonsense about how enviromentally friendly they are, Apple seems to sell a lot of stuff that requires batteries. why can't they sell a wireless mouse like my MS Mouse that is wireless but has a charger that plugs into a USB port.

They now have their battery charger that comes with 6 AA batteries.
