Finally, a notebook to satisfy your inner panda! ASUS’ U33JC-A1 is the first computer ever with hardware carved from a single piece of wood. OK maybe not, but it does sport a forest-y bamboo exterior that is indeed all natural, which ASUS says will “mature over time.” The bite-sized 13.3-inch computer is now even more edible affordable at $499, after a $150 discount and $150 mail-in rebate through LogicBUY.
The U33JC-A1 runs on a modern Intel Core i3 chip, so you won’t have any trouble with word processing, browsing, or foraging for grubs and plants. With an Nvidia graphics card and 4GB of memory, this unusually organic computer is a good catch, even if you do get furtive glances from your co-workers when they catch you watering your laptop.
Basic specs: Made of bamboo, 2.4GHz Intel Core i3-370M Dual-Core, 4GB (2x2GB) RAM, 500GB 5400rpm hard drive, Nvidia/Intel Hybrid Graphics
