Deployment Guide/End of life planning
12. End of life planning
We are all conscious of the environment and any laptop rollout program should also include an "end of life" plan. ie, what do we do with the laptops when they begin to fail after 5 or more years.
Although the laptop is environmentally more friendly than any other laptop, we still do not want to see them filling up landfills or littering the streets.
Suggestions include a bounty for return or even a replacement laptop (assuming that by then, the laptop will cost only US $75)
Local stripping down and recovery/recycling of valuable material should be considered.
