Greenpeace praises HP for killing most PVC from supply chain, Nokia still cleanest

From Greenpeace:

The 13th edition of Greenpeace's Guide to Greener Electronics rewards Hewlett-Packard for putting a PC on the market that is virtually free of PVC (vinyl plastic) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs). Only the power supply unit and cable still contain these hazardous substances.

Earlier this year, Greenpeace had staged protests at HP's headquarters in Palo Alto, USA, and at its offices in China and the Netherlands, in response to the delay on the company's commitment to eliminate these substances from its computing products, by the end of 2009. With the ProBook 5310m Notebook, however, it appears that HP has now re-prioritized its toxic phase-out commitment.
