Protecting nature is an effort that unites us all, co-existing with innovative design, memorable style and powerful computing. With U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks, you do your part for the environment while still enjoying cutting edge technology and fashionable mobility. It’s the natural choice.
Unique bamboo material innovation
If you’re both fashion and eco-conscious, the U Series Bamboo Collection was made for you. Notebooks sport smoky brown bamboo exteriors that retain their organic look, properties and tactile feel—creating a personal journey as the wood matures and changes with time. The natural bamboo is supported by sleek brushed aluminum surfaces and a seamless chiclet keyboard that’s as comfortable to use as it is great to look at. These notebooks are also very light, making it easy for you to be an ambassador of good taste and environmental responsibility.
ASUS picked bamboo for fetching looks as well as research identifying it as a quickly-replenishing resource whose utilization has almost no impact on the environment. Bamboo also offers tensile strength rivaling that of steel, making it a perfect substitute for plastic. Product packaging is equally eco-friendly, made of 100% natural and recyclable bamboo pulp and non-woven packing cloth.
2nd generation Intel® Core™ CPUs and new NVIDIA® graphics
U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks are as sophisticated as they are beautiful. They feature the increased multitasking power of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors with Sandy Bridge technology, enabling better yet more energy efficient computing. For graphics, discrete NVIDIA® GeForce™ GT 520M GPUs with 1GB of DDR3 video memory smooth out multimedia performance and offer enjoyable gaming with the latest games.
Extended battery life for true all-day computing
U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks maintain their environmental stance down to the battery. With intelligent optimization, they conserve energy while ensuring the right amount of processing power always goes into every application, creating a harmonious balance of efficiency and performance. NVIDIA® Optimus technology helps with this, automatically switching between integrated and discrete graphics modes as needed. Casual usage engages low-consumption graphics, while HD multimedia and gaming tap the full potential of the DirectX® 11-compatible GeForce® GPU. The result is a battery life of up to an incredible 10 hours*, allowing you to keep computing all day, free from relying on wall sockets.

Easy connections with Syncables software
U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks also feature Syncables technology to enable effortless sync with different devices, including desktop PCs, other notebooks, smartphones and digital cameras. Sharing files, backing up data and accessing collections quickly becomes a breeze. Intelligent syncing lets you get more done with just one light notebook as your nexus— reducing the overall energy footprint as less equipment needs to be powered at once.
USB 3.0 is another new addition to the range, enabling data transfers up to ten times faster than USB 2.0. It’s fully backward compatible so you’re assured all your existing USB devices will work as usual. Transferring massive files in mere seconds is a plus, but USB 3.0 is also good for the environment as it charges devices much faster than USB 2.0 with reduced energy consumption.
*U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks are made with genuine bamboo and thus bear unique, naturally-occurring wood grain patterns. As with any organic product, these patterns and textures may change with time. These are due to the natural characteristics of bamboo and do not indicate a defective material.
