ASUS F6 Laptops Stink (In a Good Way)

asus laptops

There have been some crazy laptop ideas in the past, but ASUS may have topped them all with their soon-to-be released F6 line of stinky computers.  This line of laptops feature a relatively standard set of specs: 13.3″ WXGA screen, an integrated webcam, an Intel Core2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of RAM support, and up to 320GB of storage.  It is the optional scent, however, that sets this lappy apart from the pack.  Each color has a specific scent, Floral Blossom for the pink, Musky Black for the black, Morning Dew for the green and Aqua Ocean for the blue.  I tried doing something similar with my laptop company a few years back, offering six different colors of the exact same “Fresh Pine” scent.  Unfortunately the scents did not last very long, and soon turned all of the laptops the same color (brownish blackish?) and turned the “Pine Fresh” scent into some weird acrid metalic/burning plastic scent.  Turns out, you’re not supposed to wedge an air freshener between a processor and a heatsink.  I thought the pleasing warmth would really release the aroma… let’s just hope Asus isn’t making the same mistake.  For the two of you out there who want one of these, the pricing and release dates have not yet been formally announced.

Those laptops look sweet! But I have no clue why someone would want to have a scented laptop…
