Look, we've all been giving Foxconn
a bit of a hard time recently with all those Apple tablet
and iPhone rumors
, so it's only fair for the Taiwanese giant to take some time off for something fresh. What we have here are a couple of self-proclaimed "world's first" desktop chassis with bamboo
front cover (so we guess that Dell Studio Hybrid
doesn't count to them), aiming to achieve environmentally-friendly status in China. While Foxconn's Bamboo Forest 1 ATX case on the right has been announced for about a month, the TXM-355 or Bamboo Forest 2 microATX case on the left is fresh from the oven -- visually already a good candidate for your next HTPC
build. Despite a few rough cuts and the ugly glue work on the optical drive flap, PCPOP
has given the smaller brother a thumbs up overall. Not bad for ￥368 ($54) either, and it's only an extra $2 for the big daddy. Just watch out for that panda behind you.
