ASUS announces the bamboo Eco Books will launch in June, to the distress of pandas

Computers, Laptops / Notebooks

The reported price is NT$50,000, which converts to a concise $1,651.80, or £832. On the whole, ASUS notebooks tend to be quite affordable, so I would be very surprised if they charge the UK market over £1,000 for it. Their ‘Eco Book’ monikers are fairly accurate, with bamboo being both in huge supply, and of little impact to the environment.
