Comment Does $100 include environmental cost (Score 2, Interesting) 347

We all want cheaper hardware, but is flooding developing nations with $100 electronic equipment environmentally sound? Does that $100 include how much it'll cost to properly dispose of the unit? If not, how much will it be? There was just another story today about cost of digital waste. Is it time for us to consider the cost of the equipment more than just the R&D + manufacturing cost?
