Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL, LSE: ACP, FWB: APC) is an American consumer electronics multinational corporation with worldwide annual sales in its fiscal year 2006 (ending September 30, 2006) of US$19.3 billion. Headquartered in Cupertino, California, Apple develops, sells, and supports a series of personal computers, portable media players, computer software, and computer hardware accessories. The company's best-known products include the Mac line of personal computers, its Mac OS X operating system, and the iPod line of portable media players. For the iPod and its related iTunes software, Apple sells audio books, games, music, music videos, TV shows, and movies in its online iTunes Store.

The company was known as Apple Computer, Inc. for its first 30 years of existence, but dropped "Computer" from its corporate name on January 9, 2007. The name change, which followed Apple's announcement of its new iPhone smart phone and Apple TV digital video system, is representative of the company's ongoing expansion into the consumer electronics market in addition to its traditional focus on personal computers.

Apple also operates 180 (as of April 2007) retail stores in the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Italy. The stores carry most of Apple's products as well as many third-party products and offer on-site support and repair for Apple hardware and software. Apple employs over 20,000 permanent and temporary workers worldwide.

For a variety of reasons, ranging from its philosophy of comprehensive aesthetic design to its countercultural, even indie roots, as well as their advertising campaigns, Apple has engendered a distinct reputation in the consumer electronics industry and has cultivated a customer base that is unusually devoted to the company and its brand.

Apple and the enviroment

Environmental protection is a priority for the conservation of precious natural resources and the continued health of our planet. Apple recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and the products we create.

Apple and the Global Environment
Apple takes pride in its history of innovation and thoughtful design. But technological leadership goes beyond what’s in the box. How we impact the environment is also important to us, and environmental considerations are an integral part of Apple’s business practices. From the earliest stages of product design through manufacturing, use, and recycling, we take care to keep our activities and our products environmentally sound.

Four areas of particular attention are product and packaging design, responsible manufacturing, energy efficiency, and recycling. Each aspect of the design cycle provides significant challenges, yet our efforts in these areas have resulted in some impressive results.

Product design
It all begins here. Reducing the environmental impact of our products starts with the product design phase. Design dictates the quantity of raw materials, type and recylability of materials, energy consumption required for manufacturing and use, and the ease of recycling. For example, our decision to eliminate Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays makes our product line much more environmentally friendly. Our flat-panel displays eliminate more than two pounds of lead, consume up to 80% less energy in sleep mode, and weigh half as much as their CRT counterparts.

Apple continually refines its product design to maximize efficiency while minimizing waste, following the requirements of programs such as ENERGY STAR® as well as our own high standards.

Responsible Manufacturing
Apple helps to safeguard the environment — as well as consumers’ safety — by restricting the use of environmentally harmful compounds in our materials and manufacturing processes. For example, our restricted substances program limits the use of heavy metals and ozone depleting substances in our products and manufacturing processes.

Energy efficiency
A device’s greatest environmental impact is often its energy consumption over time. Apple has made great strides in recent years to optimize the energy efficiency of our hardware and created tools, such as the Energy Saver feature in Mac OS X, that allow consumers to manage the power consumption of their computers. Since 2001, all Apple computers and displays have earned the ENERGY STAR® rating.

Recycling
Apple’s holistic approach to recycling — encompassing a product’s entire lifecycle — includes extensive take-back programs that enable consumers and businesses to dispose of used Apple equipment in an environmentally sound manner. Since our first take-back initiative began in Germany in 1994, we have launched programs in the United States, Canada, Japan, and throughout Europe, diverting over 34 million pounds of electronic equipment from landfills worldwide.

A history of sound practice
Year after year, Apple has set and met important goals to phase out environmentally relevant substances, create recycling programs worldwide and improve energy efficiency. Here are some of the most important milestones in our quest for environmental responsibility:

1990 Apple’s environmental policy released and implemented.
1991 Phase-out of lead in batteries in advance of the 1996 European battery directive.
1992 Phase-out of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in Apple manufacturing, as stipulated in the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer.
1992 Founding member of the US EPA ENERGY STAR® program, developed to identify and promote energy efficient computers and monitors.
1994 Phase-out of NiCad batteries.
1994 First voluntary Apple product take-back program initiated in Germany (gradual expansion to other regions).
1995 PVC in packaging materials phased out.
1996 First Apple manufacturing site (Sacramento, CA) ISO 14001 certified.
1997 First Apple products tested for conformity to TCO (Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees) standards.
1999 Introduction of the Apple Product Environmental Specification (APES) files.
1999 Lead and cadmium in cables restricted.
2000 All Apple manufacturing sites ISO 14001 certified worldwide, signifying that Apple has a structured environmental management system (EMS) in place to manage the environmental impact of our operations.
2001 All Apple computers and displays meet applicable ENERGY STAR® requirements. They continue to do so.
2001 Started voluntary phase-out of tetrabisphenol A (TBBA) in all plastic enclosure
parts >25 grams.
2002 Product take-back solutions implemented in the US and Japan.
2002 Roll-out of Apple’s global Regulated Substances Specification.
2002 Signatory of European Union Code of Conduct on Power Supplies, created to encourage manufacturers to design power supplies that minimize energy consumption in off mode.
2002 Founding member of US Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), which introduced energy efficiency requirements for the off mode of computer products.
2003 Implementation of supplier survey initiative on substance use.
2004 Investigation into halogen-free cable enclosures and printed circuit boards initiated.
2004 Phase-out of substances restricted by the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) initiated.
2005 Implementation of the Apple Supplier Code of Conduct, which governs environmental, health and safety, and human rights issues in Apple’s supply chain.
2006 All Apple products worldwide are compliant with the European Directive on the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in electronics, also known as the RoHS Directive.

Alienware is an American computer hardware company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dell Computer Corporation. It has a reputation for offering the latest technologies for desktops and laptops that are specialized for video editing, audio editing, and especially gaming. The company is based in Miami, Florida, and was founded in 1995 by its current CEO, Nelson Gonzalez, and COO, Alex Aguila.

History:
Established in 1996, Alienware manufactures high-performance desktop, notebook, media center, and professional systems. Operating under the tagline of “build it as if it were your own,” Alienware has earned numerous awards for excellence and has become a respected brand name worldwide with systems available direct within the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. According to employees, the Alienware name was chosen because of the founders' fondness for the hit television series The X-Files[citation needed], hence the theme to their products, with names such as Grey and Area-51. Alienware was originally established to tap a niche in the high performance game market, which back then was not on the radar of the major PC manufacturers such as Dell. Since high-end game hardware was not widely distributed, the company's founders formed an OEM that sold personal computers with the highest performing hardware and settings according to benchmarks.

Operations:
As of FY 2005, Alienware brought in upwards of $170 million USD in annual sales, while trimming expenses to aid an international expansion initiative launched in 2003 to maintain a presence in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom and Costa Rica. In 2002, Alienware distributed their systems through Best Buy and CompUSA at retail locations. Because of complications with that method of distribution, Alienware decided to better service the customer via direct sales and have since eschewed such an indirect retail presence. Alienware has had a call center in Costa Rica to handle all sales and support calls for a number of years.

Competitors:
Alienware has traditionally competed with companies such as Falcon Northwest, Velocity Micro and VoodooPC which is now part of Dell's biggest competitor, Hewlett-Packard. Alienware also formerly competed against Dell XPS gaming systems which they considered their biggest rival before their acquisition.

Acquisition:
On March 22, 2006, Dell agreed to purchase Alienware. Alienware continues to operate under its own brand name. This is noticeable in many regards including the similar looking homepages. This has caused a lot of controversy with gamers as Alienware was a favorite among them while Dell supposedly caters to general computer users. Dell's acquisition seems to have had some negative effect on Alienware's reputation

Products:
Alienware manufactures high-performance desktops, notebooks, media centers, and professional systems. Alienware systems include hardware from Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Creative and many more high-end vendors. Alienware's most famous series of desktops are the Aurora and Area-51 lines; Alienware also sells high-end laptops to which their most famous is the Area-51m. Recently Alienware launched a luxury system line branded with the name ALX, this line has grown into their mobile line as well.

Alienware AlienFX
Alienware AlienFX is an innovative new feature that allows users to custom configure 5 different zones on the P2 chassis with a large spectrum of lighting choices. Users will also have the option of configuring morph the strobe speed of their lighting; from a steady glow to a fast pulse

AlienIce
The AlienIce™ video cooling system maximizes airflow to keep the components in your machine running efficiently. AlienIce™ provides superior cooling with fans that are strategically placed throughout the chassis, striking the perfect balance of both negative and positive air flow, thus preventing overheating and system crashes. AlienIce™ is quieter than most high-performance cooling systems, too, so it will not disrupt game play.

Alienware Liquid Cooling
The Alienware Liquid Cooling System is a high-performance, maintenance-free system engineered with the latest, most advanced technology to provide maximum processor cooling with reduced system noise and worry-free operation. This innovative, high-performance liquid cooling system uses a high-flow, compact pump to circulate a thermally conductive liquid though a closed-loop system to remove heat from the processor and reject it to the ambient air flowing through a liquid-to-air heat exchanger.

History
The company was established in 1935 under the name Fuji Tsūshinki Seizō (富士通信機製造, Fuji Telecommunications Equipment Manufacturing), a spinoff of the Fuji Electric Company, this in turn being a joint venture between the Furukawa Electric Company and German conglomerate Siemens founded in 1923. Despite its connections to the Furukawa zaibatsu, Fujitsu escaped the Allied occupation of Japan mostly unscathed.

In 1954 Fujitsu manufactured Japan's first computer, the FACOM 100, and in 1961 the transistorized FACOM 222. In 1967, the company's name was officially changed to the contraction Fujitsū (富士通).

In 1955, Fujitsu founded Kawasaki Frontale (川崎フロンターレ, Kawasaki Furontāre) as a Fujitsu soccer club. Kawasaki Frontale has now been a J. League football club since 1999.

After 1981 Fujitsu gradually took over International Computers Ltd (ICL) in the UK, ultimately becoming Fujitsu Services in 2002. ICL Inc, the US subsidiary was founded in 1992 and was renamed to Fujitsu Transaction Solutions in 2002. This division provides Point of Sale computing products to retailers and service of equipment.

From February 1989 until the Summer of 1997 Fujitsu built the FM Towns PC variant. It started as a proprietary PC variant intended for multimedia applications and computer games, but later became more compatible with regular PCs. In 1993, the FM Towns Marty was released, a gaming console compatible with the FM Towns games.

Amdahl became a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu in 1997.

The active partnership with Siemens AG was revived in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, now Europe's largest IT supplier, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens.

On March 2, 2004, Fujitsu Computer Products of America lost a class action lawsuit over hard disk drives with defective chips and firmware.

On April 1, 2006, Fujitsu Software Corporation merged with Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation.

A laptop computer, or simply laptop (also notebook computer or notebook), is a small mobile computer, which usually weighs 2-18 pounds (1-6 kilograms), depending on size, materials, and other factors.

A laptop computer is much smaller than a desktop. Laptops usually run on a single main battery or from an external AC/DC adapter which can charge the battery while also supplying power to the computer itself. Many computers also have a 3 volt cell to run the clock and other processes in the event of a power failure.

As personal computers, laptops are capable of the same tasks as a desktop computer, although they are typically less powerful for the same price. They contain components that are similar to their desktop counterparts and perform the same functions, but are miniaturized and optimized for mobile use and efficient power consumption. Laptops usually have liquid crystal displays and most of them use different memory modules for their random access memory (RAM), for instance, SO-DIMM in lieu of the larger DIMMs. In addition to a built-in keyboard, they may utilize a touchpad (also known as a trackpad) or a pointing stick for input, though an external keyboard or mouse can usually be attached.
