Eco Friendly Laptop- Asus Eco Bamboo Notebook by Jessica Hodges
Brought to you by the same people who recently mesmerized the world with their ultra portable and affordable Eee PC, Asus recently again proved to be the trendsetter among the conceptually-challenged PC industry by launching a super stylish, yet environmentally friendly laptop, the Asus bamboo laptop. The laptop’s case is covered in bamboo, a rapidly sustainable material, because cut bamboo can be easily grown back in a short time, versus other hardwood trees that require numerous more years to be renewed. The most eco friendly aspect of this laptop doesn’t just exist in their exterior shell, the real show is on the inside. All of the plastic in this eco laptop is labeled and recyclable; it is lined with cardboard; there are no paints, sprays or even electroplating used on its components. It looks like it is designed to be easily taken apart for self-service and easy upgrading of components ( one of the main downfalls of notebooks and reason why people upgrade their notebooks. This laptop is scheduled for release sometimes later 2008.
