Computing technology is seldom known for
its eco friendly nature; frankly I would probably rather not know what kind of
freakish chemical mixture gives way to mobile phones, games consoles TVs and so
on. However, Asus has realised that there a fair few environmentally conscious
computer users out there and has unveiled the U5, a lead and halogen-free
notebook PC. All this greenness doesn’t seem to come at a cost to the machine’s
power either; it comes with the fastest Pentium M processor available and some
decent connectivity. It is also very slim design weighing in at just 1.4kg with
a 12″ widescreen. Although it is due out later in the month the price is still
yet to be announced.
