“Two hours of charging in sunlight provides up to an hour of work” – Samsung

After a successful launch in African market, Samsung is going to introduce their solar powered notbook, NC215S, in Russia. The entire back-side of the LED panel is covered with solar cells that boast overall battery life in sunlight to a total of 14.5 hours. We are assuming this with full LED brutishness, otherwise there’s no point using netbook in broad daylight.

The NC215S contains pretty much the same specs of a netbook featuring 1.6GHz N570 Intel Atom dual core processor, 1GB RAM and 250 GB storage. The 10.1 inch, SuperBright LED  display (1024×600) comes with anti-reflective coating to help maximize the viewing experience in direct sunlight. Other specs include VGA, headphone and mic ports, 3 USB 2.0 slots and 4 in 1 card reader. The built-in battery is only 6-cell, 40 Watt and we’re not sure how much time it gives without the netbook being exposed to the sun.

The netbook weighs 2.9 pounds and cost $479 which seems a great deal considering all those ‘expensive’ solar cells and extended battery life. I think this netbook can serve best for your adventure and travel needs. Source: MaximumPC
