ASUS may have been beaten to the punch by a few other companies and their bamboo-ensconced offerings
, but it looks like it's now getting its first bamboo laptop out the door at long last, and it's taken the opportunity to finally get official with a price. Apparently, the first few 12-inch models will go on sale at Taiwan
's IT Month exhibition on Saturday, where they'll run NT$59,900, or just over $1,800. Unfortunately, it's not clear exactly which configuration that'll get you, but, judging from the last word
out of ASUS, even the base config seems to be pretty capable.
