New Samsung Solar Notebook to be released soon

submitted on June 20, 2011 by orangearrows in "Products / Gadgets"
Can't wait for it to be adopted to all notebooks

First introduced for the African market, Samsung's NC215S will be hitting Russia in early August for 13,999 rubles ($479). The netbook sports a lid almost entirely monopolized by a solar panel, which contributes to an overall estimated battery life of 14.5 hours. The NC215S packs a 1.6GHz N570 Intel Atom dual-core processor, 250GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM into a 2.9 pound frame.

    Very nice and it looks like the price will not be too bad either.

    See comments at http://www.engadget.com/2011/0.....in-russia/ - one in particular (DrHappiness):
    It's just a gimmick, since solar panel would almost never face the light source directly when laptop will be in use, charging will not be efficient enough to prolong laptops battery life significantly. People who really need solar chargers would simply go for an external portable or stationary one.

    That thing looks pretty sweet! It would make for an even better excuse to get outdoors and do some work during the day (preferably around a pool or lake).
