This project was initiated by Fraunhofer IZM, Berlin, to investigate the current status of slate designs with respect to repair and recycling. Following the Energy Star definition, slate computing devices are defined as a type of computer lacking a physical keyboard, relying solely on touchscreen input, having solely a wireless network connection (e.g., Wi-Fi, 3G), and primarily powered from an internal battery (with connection to the mains for charging, not primary powering of the device). EPEAT supported this project. An overarching objective upon request by EPEAT is to create an independent evidence base for future stakeholder discussions on EPEAT criteria for slates. It is not the objective of this study to propose such criteria, nor did the study take into account all facets to def ine such criteria. Definitely, additional aspects and arguments need to be considered thoroughly in the course of the upcoming stakeholder process.
