Please can somebody who knows if this is serious or not comment?

The report makes the Macbook Pro's sound toxic to use (at least to the chemically uninformed like me).

http://www.greenpeace.org/international/news/hp-apple-toxic-laptops180906

Is this serious? In keeping with other industrial products? Time for a bluetooth keyboard? Or is that full of chemicals, too? :O

Here's the full report:

It's true.

But it is only really harmful to the environment, where the computers end up after being disgarded.

Just be sure to dispose of your computer accordingly, when you are done with it.

I wouldn't worry about it from a user standpoint, but we should all be aware on the effects on the environment we are causing by using all this tech gadgetry.

well, they arent any worse than other computers.

the real thing is to make sure your electronic devices end up in recycling bins instead of trash cans.
