Samsung to Sell USA’s First Solar Laptop

Samsung is preparing to launch the first commercial, solar-powered laptop to be sold in the U.S., Dvice reports.

The Samsung NC215S will have a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of memory, and will be powered by a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor. The solar cells are built into the lid.

News outlets are reporting that the solar charged battery will provide one hour of computing for every two hours of charging, with a fully charged battery providing up to 14 hours of computing.

The laptop also has an LED backlit display that Samsung says is 50 percent brighter than that of an average notebook, to help consumers using the product outdoors. The Samsung NC215S was first released in Africa “to great acclaim”, Inhabitat reports, and US customers will be able to buy it at the suggested retail price of $399 starting in July.

  1. With a stat of “providing one hour of power for every 2 of charging” I think this statistic should be qualified under the conditions that it is possible. When is this laptop capable of charging at that described rate? Indoors with light streaming in through a window? any power from florescent lighting? Or only under outdoor direct sunlight conditions in the summer?

  2. Really a good one to be added in the new tech. But the configuration they start with is very low. I would like to know the feature up-gradation plan for this laptop.

  3. Almost a nice article, but without the meat, as in the mechanics of how you charge it, it only leaves your readers frustrated.
