Apple chief Steve Jobs unveiled the new iMac today, touting the computer’s recyclable aluminum frame and glass screen. Apple (AAPL) also won an Energy Star rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the iMac’s energy efficiency. The latest generation iMac appears to help fulfill the pledge Jobs made in May to make Macs more environmentally friendly. Of course, while aluminum is indeed recyclable, the process for making the metal is highly energy-intensive.
