Effective December 15, 2008, two-thirds of Dell Latitude E-Family notebooks will be shipped with mercury-free LED backlighting as a standard feature. This includes the Latitude E4200, E4300, E6400, E6400 ATG and E6500. Also shipping with LED backlighting as a standard display will be the Dell Precision M2400 and M4400 mobile workstations.

In addition to being mercury-free and highly recyclable, LED displays deliver significant energy savings compared to cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) technology. For example, Dell’s 15-inch LED displays consume an average of 43% less power at maximum brightness, resulting in extraordinary cost and carbon savings. The company estimates customer savings of approximately US$20 million and 220 million kilowatt-hours in 2010 and 2011 combined, the equivalent of annual CO2 emissions resulting from energy use of more than 10,000 homes.
