Eco-EEEvolution in Desktop Computers from Asus

The highly anticipated Eee Box from Asus launched last month, giving gadget geeks one more eco-alternative for their computing needs, whether for business or pleasure. Slimmer than a paperback novel, the Eee box mounts onto the back of any VESA LCD display to save space.

The company also recently announced the launch of it’s bamboo Asus laptops that are partially biodegradable.
