In recent years it has become trendy and very positive be green. Asus has decided to follow Kyocera's lead and clean up technology's act with the new ECOBOOK.
With 'EcoBook' Asus has created a laptop which positively helps fighting the global warming and greenhouse effect.
There won't be many who find issue with the choice of material used in the EcoBook. Bamboo wood is easily replenished (it grows infamously fast) and yet when polished up it creates a luxurious wood veneer that is also biodegradable.
But the goodness of ASUS new ECOBOOK doesn't stop there. the plastics chosen to manufacture the EcoBook come from recyclable raw materials and are numbered to facilitate recycling when the product reaches the end of its life cycle.
Asus has also used Paper in the making of this notebook, being used to build the computer enclosure from a form of stiffened card.
In the new ASUS ECOBOOK there is a LED indicator below the screen that changes its light between green and red to show when you are in a low or high energy consumption setting. These LEDs themselves are mounted directly behind the product surface to save waste and there are no paints, sprays or even electroplating used on its components.
Asus new EcoBook exposes the raw materials, keeping the manufacturing process free of any solvents and hazardous materials.
With a release scheduled to the beginning of next year, Asus is obviously in no position to give away specifications or pricing. In the meantime, I am sure many laptop and notebook producers will follow this green initiative that Asus is already leading.
