ASUS and Sam’s Club Canada Join Forces to Deliver Green Computing to Canada

-- World’s first bamboo notebook to be sold exclusively at Sam’s Club Canada --

Fremont, California (November 10, 2008) – ASUS, a world leader in the notebook design and one of the fastest growing notebook brands, today announced that Sam’s Club Canada will give eco-friendly Canadians a chance to purchase a limited number of ASUS’ highly-anticipated U6V bamboo notebook. The partnership is a “win” for ASUS, Sam’s Club Canada, and consumers, as it allows ASUS to expand its market presence further into Canada, and gives Sam’s Club Canada and its Members access to an exquisite, environmentally-friendly notebook that truly stands out from the crowd with its first-in-the-world bamboo design.

Revolutionary Green Computing with ASUS
As a showcase of ASUS’ commitment to environmentally-friendly Green Computing, ASUS is proud to have created the world’s first notebook that largely foregoes hard materials such as plastic and metal in favor of all-natural bamboo, which is both renewable, abundant, and a pleasure to touch and feel. On this particular notebook, the palm rest, touchpad and LCD cover are covered in bamboo, giving the U6V bamboo a distinct look that is sure to turn heads. Not only is its overall exterior design based on a renewable resource, but it is also energy efficient and has achieved the coveted Energy Star certification.

Come see it in person
ASUS and Sam’s Club Canada will be holding public demonstrations of the U6V Bamboo notebook at the Club’s Etobicoke location, on November 14th from 5 to 8pm, and its Richmond Hill location on November 15th from 12 to 3pm.
