In fact, the Concept Luna is an innovation from last year, however, Dell has taken this idea even further. With a simple push of a button, your new notebook can be disassembled in about 30 seconds, allowing components to be interchanged, without screws or complicated procedures.
Dell’s idea is to give electronics a “second, third, or even fourth life” instead of throwing them away.
Imagine a future where we don't throw away used electronics. Instead, we harvest individual ingredients for a second, third, or even fourth life.
This is the basic idea that Dell intends to convey with the new Concept Luna. Recycling and reuse should become words used in awareness campaigns, but effectively by everyone, including large corporations.
Dell also states that "once the device itself has truly reached the end of its useful life," the company will have to move forward with repair and recycling, "to incorporate these materials into next-generation laptops, displays, or phones."
It's a future where nothing is lost, and we're dramatically reducing the mountain of discarded electronics every year—more than 57 million tons globally, to be exact. Not only is technology immaterial, but the materials we use fuel a strong circular economy, thus reducing the need for new raw materials.
Concept Luna - A modular computer that comes apart in seconds
Dell has developed a fully modular design with Concept Luna, where every component can fit together with great ease. The process begins by simply opening up the keyboard with the pin tool, then removing the two speaker modules, the battery, CPU fan, and thin motherboard. The screen is also simply removed after unlocking the center panel of the computer.
The model introduced last year was much easier to open than an ordinary laptop, however, it required more technical manpower, since it was not available to anyone, like this new model.
There was also concern about which components tend to be replaced the most, and which are easier to access
