Here Comes the Tech Greenwave: Asus' Bamboo PC

Asus Bamboo PC

The Asus Bamboo PC is here, supposedly.

Asus is advertising it, even linking to Amazon, where it seems like they're not quite ready for it.

My cynical side sees this is the latest in the greenwashing movement in the high-tech industry. If they're serious, however, I applaud them.

Here's how ASUS puts it:

ASUS has created a strategy dubbed the "4 Green Home Runs" to deliver greener products for the consumer. The “Green Home Runs” are Green Design, Green Manufacturing, Green Procurement and Green Service and Marketing.

OK, let's do it - a green value-chain! I just hope we don't learn later that they're clearing Giant Panda habitat to make PC covers.

Geek info: ASUS U6V-V1-Bamboo 12.1-Inch Laptop (2.53 GHz Intel T9400 Processor, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB Hard Drive, Nvidia 9300M GS Graphics, Vista Business)

BTW, Bamboo is pretty nifty and is definitely one of those "sustainable products for our future."
