ASUS EcoBook Laptops Good for the Environment, Not So Much Your Wallet. December 1, 2008

So maybe many of you don’t remember, but around this time last year, ASUS revealed a concept laptop that was clad in bamboo. Now that concept is a reality. Coming in a 12.1″ and 11″ formfactors, this badboy went on sale at the Taiwan IT Month exhibition on Saturday running at about NT$59,900. That’s about $1800USD for you foreign currency impaired readers us here in North America. Looks sexy enough, but with the relatively high price tag, I’m not sure if its worth it. However Asus isn’t known to be frugal with their specs, so here comes the nerdy part…specs! AFTER THE JUMP!
