Sleek Solar-Powered Netbook

Computer manufacturers have been teasing consumers with solar powered laptops and computers for years, but the implementation of the technology has been a bit lackluster. Today Samsung revealed a sleek solar-powered netbook (the world’s first they claim). Two hours in the sun equals one hour of usage, which is a drop in the bucket considering the battery already provides over 14 hours of use. The catch? It’s releasing in Russia in early August (and for only 13,999 rubles! [about $500 USD]) with typical netbook specs. No word yet on when or if it’ll be coming to a store near you. Check out the cool pics below in the meantime:
