Samsung’s Solar Powered Netbook Goes On Pre-Order


Currently available on Amazon.com.

Greenpeace activists can now happily tweet about the environment without hurting it at the same time. This has become possible thanks to the Samsung NC215 netbook.
The NC215 sports a solar panel on its lid that can charge the netbook’s 6-cell battery. Of course, you can go outdoors and use it solely on solar power to “save the environment”. For the sake of energy efficiency, the netbook will only be available in black. It offers decent specs including a dual-core Atom N570 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB HDD, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. The software department will be taken care of by Windows 7 Starter Edition.

Those interested can book this $399 (approx Rs 20,000) netbook on Amazon.com or wait till it is available in India
