Asus showed wooden laptop at Computex

Forget about all those whacked-out computers covered in diamonds, flames, and car manufacturer logos that tell the world how much money you have to spend. Instead, impress the world by whipping out a wooden computer.

Asus unveiled a prototype design at Computex 2007 that features a laptop covered in a beautiful wood veneer. There are no specifications as to what kind of processing power you’ll get from this lappy, but according to the company, computers shouldn’t be all about power, but rather how they look and feel. I guess that was enough to convince the show to give the prototype the Best Product Design award.

It is not clear when (if) Asus would market the wood laptop, but if and when they do, I hope the package includes a can of wood polish and a termite-inspection certificate. Oh, and don’t forget a first aid kit for the occasional splinter 🙂

The wooden laptops come in 3 different colors
