E-waste is a serious problem that we face today and several processes and techniques that try to extract usable material from them are already being explored; but, these techniques and processes attempt to only solve the problem of E-waste that has already been created - The heart of the problem lies in reducing E-waste to be created by future technologies. The concept that this paper proposes is that of “Highly Configurable Computing Units”. The idea here is to develop a computing unit that is highly configurable, sturdy and has a very good lifetime. The CPU chassis has lots to offer - customizable from top to bottom, made of recyclable material, aesthetic looks and the most important feature: the ability to adapt to present day technology. Consumers merely change the outdated components instead of the entire computer as a whole. Hence the key requirement of the HCCU [Highly Configurable Computing Unit] is to facilitate the easy replacement of components and ensure system stability after the change.
