Got Wood, Mini-Notebooks?

As previously mentioned the Intel Atom booth here at Computex is chock full of every type of mini-notebook you have ever wanted. Everything from the Eee PC 1000 to the Intel Classmate PC to the MSI Wind to the Acer Aspire one are on display. And although they are all different in their own ways, they all look very similar to each other. But amongst the crowd was a wooden mini-notebook that caught my eye. Though the netbook was unbranded, I have a sneaking suspicion that it is in fact the Amtek Elego since its neighboring system clad in a bright yellow, which read Elego on the lid, was a replica. But does a wooden mini-notebook make sense? Not if it heats up like this one does. Touching the palm rest was very warm and the underside of the notebook was steamy. Though there was a fan on the right side, it didn’t seem to be doing much. Check out the video of the wood burning mini-notebook. [flv:/flvs/WoodenNote_0001.flv 320 240]
