Fujitsu 'green' notebooks

The Japanese division of Fujitsu is preparing to demonstrate two unusual new notebooks at a design exhibition in Milan, the company has announced. The "WoodShell" is merely a concept PC, but uses a case built primarily out of cedar wood instead of typical metal or plastic materials. This has the benefit of tapping into renewable resources, while at the same time making the computer biodegradable when it is inevitably thrown away. The WoodShell follows a few short weeks after ASUS revealed its bamboo notebook.

The other computer is the FMV-Biblo NX95Y/D, which while generally a standard design, is significant for also using renewable resources in the form of plastic derived from corn. Both the NX95Y/D and the WoodShell should be on display starting April 16th.
