    Nice machines, probably pretty nice to use too, but not at £75 extra!

    It's sad, but when i look at this, all I can think of is Bender's downgrade to his wooden body in Futurama...

    BTW in your first sentence you pressed ',' instead of 'm'!

    oh I rather like the look of those, not in the market for a laptop at the moment but maybe next year when my current laptop celebrates its 8th birthday...

    Panda's can't even be bothered to copulate - would they bother about food?

    Of course they would. Why do you think they're so reluctant to copulate in the first place? :D

    This puts me in mind of the wooden cabinet TVs from days of old - but in a good way. Very sleek design :D

    to confirm, the entire laptop is recyclable? lcd? keyboard? pcb? cpu? mem?
    if so, good job asus and well worth the extra cost

    How does the bamboo effect heat dissipation? I thought the trend towards aluminium bodies was to aid cooling?

    Wooden trackpad? Rubbing a wood sheet all day would wear it down pretty quick, quicker than plastic, right?

    Actually I imagine the bamboo laminate on the trackpad would be quite tough and hardwearing. And just how much pressure are you going to put on a track pad anyway?

    I figured it'd be even tougher. I've worn smooth many a keyboard and mouse, yet have seen hardwood floors a century old which are still quite decent. Wood is very durable, bamboo particularly so!

    I think it looks great appart from that thickness! 34mm! Especially on a 13" laptop. At £900 i'd rather not.
