Asus Eco-Laptop

Asus (who make some pretty good computer products) have announced a new line of notebook computers with a number of features that will appeal to EcoGeeks. The case is bamboo (wearing its green on its sleeve), but it has a number of other elements that really make it a green device.

"Its case is covered in bamboo, which I suppose is www.animationnation.com a statement, but the real show is inside. All of the plastic in it is labelled and i recommend canada cialis online 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, usually the downfall of notebooks."

This really looks like someone is beginning to get it, and is producing a computer that EcoGeeks can think about buying without having to www.diabetes.org.br hold our noses. It's reported to be hitting the www.tevaka.com street in 2008, and there's no word about the cost for this yet. We'll see how viable this turns out to be, but it looks promising.

Aside from making an environmental statement, I love the aesthetics of this thing. It's one of tramadol cod order those things that comes out and then strikes me with "why haven't they thought of this before?" I love that they don't have their logo on the cover, interrupting the flow of the bamboo covering --because who needs a logo when you've developed the only laptop of your kind? I'm drooling.

I do like the look of these and the 100 mg soft viagra eco concept. Making it easily upgradeable is a long overdue idea for laptops as all too often people just throw the whole thing away if they feel the need to upgrade.

Wouldn't cutting down a bunch of trees to make a laptop be considered a bad idea?

@larry... also, no. this is basic ecogeekery! timber is canada cialis a renewable resource, plastics come from a non-renewable resource (fossil fuels) and are in general more energy intensive to produce.

Love the concept, but a few more ecofrie
written by Trina, May 28, 2009
I am definitely going to look into this laptop to purchase. But I have to wonder a few things:

Was the production of the bamboo that is used for this product bad for the environment? I am not familiar with what kinds of chemicals are used, but I know many places in the world will clear forests for cultivation. This is a step in a very negative direction if this is the case.

Also, why did they not use recycled plastics within the laptop? That's great that it is recyclable, but a greater impact would be to use plastic that is already around.

Just a few thoughts.
