SOL is a unique solar-powered laptop with ingeniously integrated solar panels which enable it to function for 8 – 10 hours after 2 hours charging.
The solar panels can also be removed from the laptop and placed in the sun so that they still recharge your laptop while you work with it inside the house.
It is perfect for people who travel in areas where power supply is unavailable or who want to conserve energy.
The SOL runs presently on Ubuntu but other operating systems could be used. It is powered by an Intel Atom D2500 1.86 GHz Duo Core processor with an Intel 945GSE chipset and an integrated Intel GMA3600 graphics card.
It has a 13.3 in LCD HD screen, 320 GB of HDD storage and 2 – 4 GB of DDRIII SDRAM, a 3 MP webcam and Wi-Fi and 3G/4G/LTE, plus connections for GPS and Bluetooth.
The SOL comes loaded with all the productivity and creativity software you need. Since it runs on Ubuntu, there are thousands of apps. you can download for free.
And with a rugged design built for durability, the SOL will probably last for a long time under all kinds of hardship. There is no information about its weight.
And the cost is only $350. For a waterproof one, add $50 more.
The SOL laptop is produced by WeWi Telecommunications in Waterloo, Canada.
