You know I hated to hear this. Greenpeace has recently found that Apple laptops (including my lovely new MacBook Pro) are full of toxic chemicals.
Apple has recently launched its new range of MacBooks, but what you also get with a new MacBook is the highest level of another type of toxic flame retardant, tetrabromobisphenol A. Apple claims it is looking for alternatives but for now it appears to be using far more of this toxic chemical than its competitors.

Given that they have previously been criticized for making iPods with batterries that could not be replaced or recharged, this is starting to add up to bad envronmental image for Apple. Say it ain’t so!
