The NEW Portus AIO is incredibly fast, it saves space and you can use it in landscape or portrait mode. Not only that we know that it is significantly better for the environment as less plastic, metal and cardboard materials are needed to create and package the product. The Portus AIO is Saving space, reducing materials whilst providing exceptional functionality and speed.

Our Environmental Commitment

Portus Digital are committed to doing everything we can to reduce the environmental impact of buying new technology for home or office. Portus Digital is part of a group that has been trading in electronics since 1993. We’ve seen the incredible development and growth of the tech sector and done our best to keep up. Now we recognize that there is more to be done to protect the future of our planet – we don’t want to hinder sales or the growth of the sector instead we plan to positively influence our customers to seek the greener option.

We’ve incorporated greener processes & committed to recycling all surplus packaging & all your old tech when you purchase through us. We may not be able to control the materials, supply chain & production of the brilliant brands that we work with, but we support their efforts in meeting EPEAT standards & improving their environmental policies.

We went a step further and have built our own range of All in One or Integrated Computer. It is modular in it’s build so the key component (the processor) is replaceable. This means when your computer starts to slow – you can simply replace that part – rather than scrapping the whole unit. We estimate that this will extend the items life by 50%.

The computer doesn’t have a base tower and everything is built into the screen it reduces down the plastic components use in the build – making it more environmentally friendly and space saving too. We are also working with developers and designers to build new PREMIUM tech from recycled materials.

together with our suppliers we use UPS’s carbon neutral shipping option, which supports projects that offset the emissions of the shipment’s transport. UPS supports projects that include reforestation, landfill gas destruction, waste water treatment, & methane destruction.

Carbon Footprint

Each month we pledge to donate money to Carbon Footprint who fund tree planting projects and other environmental protection initiatives in the UK and abroad.
