Asus to offer bamboo subnotebooks this summer

2148_b.jpg

Bamboo’s all the rage today, with Asus announcing that its own lineup of wooden-cased computers will arrive in stores this summer.

Digitimes, itself citing Apply Daily, reports that it’ll put out subnotebooks in 11″ and 12″ sizes in June, for about $1,650. Pictured is a larger prototype from its demo at the recent CeBit show, where it presented a desktop and other notebook form factors. None of these other mockups are planned to conjoin with reality, unfortunately.

Getting hold of these in the west might be a problem. Dynamism, I hope you’re on it.
