Green Apples might be rotten inside

APPLES LATEST promotion of what it calls the 'greenest laptop range ever' is entirely spin for the intellectually-challenged fan base which believes whatever fantasy is manufactured for them by Mac Marketing.

It said that Apple deserves credit for eliminating brominated flame-retardants (BFRs) and other toxic plastics and managing relatively low power consumption.
