ASUS U6 Bamboo, 2008 The ASUS Bamboo Series notebooks are an intimate celebration of the beauty of bamboo and the power of nature. The Bamboo Series is a concept notebook from ASUS and marks Green ASUS’ commitment to our environment. Additional Info: Bamboo has been hailed as a key crop that has been used for a broad range of products, such as furniture, interior decoration, tools, and clothing, to name just a few. It is sustainable and very strong, easy and quick to grow, requires very little water, helps reduce CO2 and is fairly pest resistant. The introduction of the Bamboo notebooks clearly demonstrates Green ASUS' respect and commitment to the environment. Mature Moso bamboo, around 2 years old, is used in the Bamboo notebooks. This aligns with the natural lifespan of the bamboo, and the manufacturing process uses less energy than traditional metal alloys that are refined from petrol. In addition, the Bamboo notebook enables the user to have a more personal relationship with the computer. Users will have a highly individual and personal experience with the Bamboo notebook where every touch on the touch pad will be reflected by color and surface change over time and use, as only a natural fiber like bamboo can demonstrate. Bamboo is a stunning blend of the ancient and the modern, having been used and revered for its properties over centuries in Chinese culture. The Bamboo notebook represents ASUS' continuous commitment to introducing cutting-edge products that deliver a unique user experience. Using an environmentally friendly natural material such as bamboo, a harmony between technology and nature is established seamlessly, powerfully and stylishly. The beautiful use of bamboo allows you a sense of familiarity and a resonance of touch that brings the power and harmony of nature into your computing environment. Every notebook is unique as each piece of bamboo has its own natural patterning that is beautifully revealed by ASUS' proprietary manufacturing process. And underneath the beauty of the surface is a feat of engineering, boasting an incredible resilience that has been testing to its limit successfully on the unforgiving conditions of Mount Everest.
