Bamboo Laptop Powered By AsusTek


Asustek launched a nature friendly laptop on August 28, 2008. The launch was done at Taiwan's IT Month Exhibition. The laptop has a casing made of Bamboo and comes with a 12.1 inch screen. Developer's at ASUStek said that the step was urged in an effort to use renewable materials in its products.


IT Month in Taiwan is the time when companies display their products and gives consumers the top bargains. The exhibition takes place at 4 major cities in which The Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Halls, is the most happening place to attend.

The shell of the laptop is made of real bamboo. Bamboo sticks are widely grown in ASIA and it is very freely available. Bamboo is used in making furniture, artworks and feeding Panda's. Bamboo is unlikely to harm the environment. Cher Chronis, the company's Director Marketing said "Originally we came out with a leather model style-book. It was very popular. After that, it was kind of natural for us to experiment with other types of material, so we decided to go green". AsusTek was also awarded, Highly Environmental Friendly Company in the Computers and Peripherals Industy by oekom in 2007. 

Asus launched the new bamboo skin laptop in Asia first and then would be following worldwide. It will be adding the laptop in the U6V series of notebook PCs. It has a 12.1 inch screen with a Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor and Microsoft Windows Vista OS. The Bamboo Skin Notebook has a tag price of US$ 1802. 

The first thing about the ASUS Bamboo Series notebook that commands immediate and unfailing attention is its artisan-grade Moso bamboo paneling, which is crafted with the precision and care typically associated with bamboo instruments and arts and crafts. The organic tactility, refreshing scent and minimalist aesthetics of bamboo lend the ASUS Bamboo Series notebook an arresting aura of spirituality, warmth and old world charm that synthetic materials and cold, impersonal metals will struggle to replicate. With every touch, users will be able to feel the difference – the bamboo gives an instant sense of familiarity, just like the sensation one would get from running one's fingertips across furniture. The sensation of being close to nature is even conveyed when users use the touch pad. The genuine bamboo fiber patterns on the touch pad create the sensation of touching live bamboo. Furthermore – like any piece of original art – every ASUS Bamboo Series notebook is unique, each with its own natural patterning that is brought out beautifully by ASUS' proprietary manufacturing process. The air of individuality of each piece can be further enhanced by several treatments that yield different colors, or by laser etching distinctive designs onto the ASUS Bamboo Series notebook's bamboo-clad cover.
