We're buying new computers for the different departments in our company as part of our go-green program. Which brand is known for having eco-friendly products?

As far as I know, companies don't make efficiency a priority these days. I can recommended specs to look for though.

That's kind of a loaded question.  The most efficient? The greenest production? The greenest recycle program?  Even so I hardly think a company would consider this a concern but if you do that is awesome!!!!  Personally I would buy computers with the best durability as that in itself would be a big environmental investment to me.  Maintenance would be second concern in keeping a pc enviro friendly.  I see that Dell and HP are at the top along with another company that I never heard of lol.  Many computers are just tossed, or are no longer compatible with current technology imo.  There are many list's out there but who knows by what criteria they are using to create these list's articles.  A lot of the articles I see are old, here is one that you might read, unless you can find newer.

That's a great point. I'd love anything that you guys can recommend both in specs or brand.

We recently hired a company for continuous monitoring and their energy management solution. I'm thinking maybe they have an idea of which ones to get.

Sorry, still a bit of a noob to computers.  You would need to post exactly what kind of stuff you are doing at work, and that company you are working with will know better than I for sure.  It might also be good to know how the old system did with the work load and adjust from there considering the old hardware.
