Bamboo Series notebooks juxtapose their natural bamboo exteriors with sleek, brushed aluminum for a striking combination of elemental beauty. The bamboo material was chosen after research identified it as a quickly-replenishing resource whose utilization has almost no impact on the environment as a whole. Mature Moso bamboo is harvested at roughly two years of age to align with its natural lifespan, and the manufacturing process uses less energy than traditional metal alloys that are refined from petrol.
The streamlined bamboo design reduces the use of plastic material by up to 15%.1 Even the notebooks' product packaging is made of 100% natural, recyclable bamboo pulp and non-woven packing cloth. The U33Jc-A1 provides a more personal experience for users, as the bamboo material used in the palm rest and the touch pad has a natural touch and feel. ASUS also provides a free take-back service that helps you recycle their products.4
And the U33Jc-A1 has user-enhancing comfort to ease you through day-to-day tasks. Scroll, click, and type with ease on a chiclet keyboard with concave keys that increase precision and decrease fatigue. With a multi-touch trackpad, the U33Jc-A1 is easy to navigate, so you can scroll and zoom effortlessly.
