The carbon footprint of an Apple Vision Pro amounts to 335kg of greenhouse gas emissions, slightly higher than the 300kg emitted by the 16-inch MacBook Pro I currently use. This represents approximately 15% of a yearly emissions budget of 2 tons, or about 3% when depreciated over a 5-year period.
As a programmer specializing in Apple technologies, I am naturally curious about the Apple Vision Pro. However, I have decided against purchasing one, not primarily due to financial constraints, but because I believe its environmental impact exceeds what is justifiable for a product that remains largely nonessential.
For numerous reasons, I hope the Apple Vision Pro fails to gain traction. However, it seems unlikely. Therefore, I urge you to consider its environmental cost as seriously as its monetary expense before making a purchasing decision. Please aim to offset emissions elsewhere, just as you would seek to save money in other areas if you choose to acquire one.
