Perhaps bamboo might not seem a good material to make a laptop out of but the engineers at ASUS would disagree, as you can tell by the ASUS UV6 Bamboo laptop.  Measuring 15.2 x 9.6″ with a 12.1 LCD and containing an Intel P8600 and 3GB of RAM as well as a DVD drive and 250GB HDD, the UV6 packs almost as much power as their Lambourghini model.  That slight lessening of processing power results in much longer battery life, a feature that t-break was very happy to see.

“The notebook itself is small in size and beautiful to look at. The entire top lid is covered with a bamboo layer that not only looks good but feels quite nice as well. It has definitely made heads turn. The bamboo finish continues on the palmrest including the trackpad and this makes the feel of the trackpad with the wooden texture incredible to glide your finger upon. It beats the Glassy trackpad on the Unibody designed Macbooks which I felt were the best I had used.”
