Just after Michael Dell unveiled a bamboo PC as his Earth Day gift, Asus is reportedly making plans to release its own laptops made with the sustainable material this summer. The first models from the Taiwanese company will be notebooks with 12- and 11-inch screens for about $1,650, according to Boing Boing, citing reports from publications in Asia.

We have just one thing to say: Finally. We've been teased by photos of these computers for more than a year, only to see their models multiply with no word of ever coming to market. In fact, the company has moved on to showing off concepts of desktop versions. We're guessing that it'll be Earth Day 2009 before we hear anything concrete about those.
