Remember this thing? That was the mock-up. The dream. The reality, as ever, is much more disappointing than the original crazed fantasy. The final Asus U6 now just comes with a small strip of bamboo surrounding the keyboard and screen, no doubt to stop warping and to help it pass stringent modern fire regulations.
So it's not really an "eco-friendly" laptop any more. It's now just a regular notebook with a bit of wood stuck on the front of it. It's more of a design statement than a planet-saving option. Fail. [Via Tech Digest]
