ASUS EcoBooks launch
In an attempt to establish itself as an environmentally-friendly brand while offering a stylish and unique product, ASUS last year announced bamboo-covered notebooks. Recent reports cite that the laptops include the company's 11-inch S6 series and 12-inch U6 series, appear on the Chinese market by June at prices starting at an estimated equivalent of $1,600.
There is a possibility the notebooks will also be joined by desktop PCs and monitors covered by Bamboo wood, as ASUS recently showed such products, but has not revealed mass production plans.
