Personally, I would think it would be a huge selling point, plus it looks great. I don't know why Asus does not do it... ?

first off... carbon fiber should NOT stay in the "car department" because it's lighter, and more durable than most plastics and even some metals...

third... "rice tuner type"... carbon fiber is used everywhere... space shuttles, wheelchairs, cars, computers, everything. who wouldn't want a stronger and lighter alternative than plastic / metal.
Carbon fiber isn't cheap either, so in that contrast, it would make it more "elegant" to have carbon fiber on say, the bottom of your laptop, seeing has how it's more expensive... ( like having a leather interior vs a cloth. )
I ordered my Asus V6V and one of the selling points was the carbon fiber bottom...
And on top of that I've ordered a 1mm sheet of carbon fiber to lay across the top lid to protect it from scratches... so I guess I'm a "ricer tuner type"
