Also, at CES 2010 couple days ago, I spotted the ASUS U83 JC Bamboo laptop, basically a bamboo version of ASUS UL80Jt we reviewed earlier minus an optical drive.
I have to say, this is the “ultimate” bamboo laptop to get, featuring great bamboo texture for those of you who don’t want such shiny finish on your laptops and touchpad.
I am really crossing my fingers that this laptop will be available and ASUS starts selling bamboo-finished laptops here in the U.S.
This awesome bamboo laptop features Intel i3 or i5, DDR 1066Mhz up to 4GB in memory, Nvidia GeForce 310M with 1GB of graphics memory that’s switchable to Intel integrated for saving power, and pretty much same specs as the ASUS UL30Jt and the UL80Jt.
In screen size, the U83Jc is similar to the UL80Jt at 14-inch screen but lack of an optical drive makes it more like the UL30Jt. Of course, don’t forget there’s also USB 3.0 added.
There’s no word on when it will be available but when it is, I am sure many people will love to get this laptop including myself who believe bamboo is a great choice for laptops and also is one of the most sustainable wood materials in the world.
Well, I got more CES stuff coming, subscribe and keep on readin’
I also have video of this I believe, it should be available in couple days so keep checkin’ back with Zedomax.com, thanks!
I have one question, why is the weight of this laptop actually heavier than ul80jt.
I thought minus optical drive will decrease the weight of the laptop…
Also, Is this laptop also coming out either February or March?
In addition, do ul30jt and ul80jt have superspeed usb3.0?
I don’t think so, the bamboo U83 series does, I should have that up shortly.
Hmm… now, I can’t decide which laptop to buy……
are you sure about the ul30jt coming out on either february or march?
I hope it comes out at least before april…
Well, it’s not a sure thing but you will certainly have to wait until feb or march before it’s available for pre-order on Amazon. But I have a gut feeling that nothing else can come out than this based on ASUS history of UL30A and UL30VT. I did the same thing, UL30VT came out right after UL30A so I waited, not too long.
