Samsung solar-powered netbook NC215S

The battery of gadgets and notebooks alike have always been the achilles heel of all portable devices. But that will not be the case from now onwards, hopefully. Samsung has rolled out its solar-powered netbook, NC215S in the US.
The solar powered device, available in the US from July 3 with a suggested retail price of $399 packs a 10.1-inch matte display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. Moreover, it has 1GB of RAM and a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual-core processor.

Though not the most impressive spec, but according to Samsung, you should be able to get an hour of battery life for every two hours of charging time via its solar panel. Under ideal conditions, Samsung says,
you should also be able to squeeze about 14 hours of battery life out of the netbook. But it is obvious that it will provide much shorter battery life for say when under cloudy or rainy conditions as it runs on solar energy.
Lets see how the NC215S gets on once it arrives the netbook market.
