In pictures: The world's coolest, greenest datacentres

Datacentres are taking advantage of energy saving technologies to run more efficiently in order to be kind to the environment and the bottom line

Titan Data Center, Moses Lake, Wash. Built in the command and control center of a former U.S. Air Force Titan missile base in central Washington, ServerFarm Realty’s Titan Data Center structure was built to Department of Defense specifications to block electrical, mechanical or acoustic emanations that might unintentionally disclose data being transmitted. The base was in use by the military only between 1963 and 1965. The site is located in a high-desert area, making it possible to employ evaporative cooling, which the company says is free. Using 85% hydroelectric power keeps the facility’s carbon footprint low.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
