    Who cares about Apple. Unless you want to call it iGrass. I wonder though, as it wears, would it start producing splinters?

    Hmm - built-in obsolescence, so you have to get a new one each year. Sure that'll go down well with shareholders.

    Or you could sell substandard ones as "iType (Masochist Edition)"

    Yes, I know I'm not taking this seriously... Think I'll be sticking with my ole Logitech K800 for the time being. (expensive, but excellent to type on)

    Is this April 1st? Even if it is 92% Bamboo the keys make it look like a veneer out of a cheap mid 80's Rover...

    These ASUS notebooks were only a small percentage bamboo but apparently reduced platic usage by about 15 per cent.
    Is there a platic shortage I should know about?

    Well it won't last forever and isn't very biodegradable. A few bamboo keyboards aren't going change that but anything that tries alternative construction materials is a good thing IMO.

    I grow bamboo in the garden. I think it's a lovely material and resource. It's one of the fastest growing things on the planet. I'm not to convinced about on my desk though.

    It would look great on my wooden desk, sure.
    ....but what about the mouse? You can't make a keyboard and not a matching mouse.....

    +1 for the splinter thoughts too.

    Never mind about splinters - I'd be more worried that a wooden mouse would contain a lot of very tiny Greeks...

    (well, the thought made me smile anyway).

    8% remaining for the PCB, the keys, cable and various other gubbins. Having recently dismantled a generic HP keyboard I'm struggling to see how this is even possible.

    92% by weight maybe?
