HP Packaging its dv692 in its Own Laptop Bag

HP Gets Eco-Friendly With Its Packaging

Last week, PetSugar ordered a camera battery from Amazon, and it came in this unnecessarily over-sized box – waaay too big for the size of its contents. It made me kinda sad to see such a waste of space (and materials) for such a small item. So when I saw HP's packaging idea for its newest laptop at a recent unveiling here in San Francisco, I was relieved that at least someone shares my frustration.

Available at your local Wal-Mart for a cool $900, the HP Pavillion dv692 will be sold in its own laptop bag, reducing packaging waste by 97 percent! You'll find the computer on the shelves right in the bag, complete with safety bubbles to prevent damage. And I gotta say — the bag ain't half bad! It's certainly more stylish than some of the others we've seen here. Would you buy a laptop that comes in its own bag, or are you just too picky about your accessories?

I think that's a clever idea. Just seems like you would get an awful lot of people running around with the same bag.

Cool bag. As for the oversized box, you can always keep the box to make something useful out of it, then it isn't a waste, even if it was only carrying a battery.

It's a great idea, and I like that the bag doesn't scream "computer bag". It totally spares you from having to search for a bag afterward because honestly everyone with a laptop will need a bag or protective sleeve at least. That said, I'd still be leery about carrying around one with HP stamped on it.
