Ask for It In “Green” At Best Buy and You’ll Get a Hybrid

When my computer’s hard drive crashed this week, every techie I talked to said it was too fried to be rebuilt. So I did some quick research and headed over to Best Buy for a replacement.

In case you haven’t been there recently, there are MOUNTAINS of computers to choose from. The salesman was going on and on about this model and that when I stopped him short. "What do you have in "green"?" I asked.

Studio Hybrid DesktopFor a minute, he looked flummoxed. Then he got a big smile on his face and practically pranced over to the new Dell hybrid.

"Take a look at this," he said. "It’s one third the size of a normal hard drive, uses significantly less energy, reduces packaging and the whole thing is made out of recycled plastic."

I bought it on the spot.

It seems like he never would have mentioned it if I hadn’t asked for it in "green." Great lesson for future shopping.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Regina. If we all keep asking for “it” in “green,” we’ll have a lot more to choose from!
