Good news for those who’ve been frustrated with the battery of their netbooks or notebooks while they’re on the run. The Samsung solar-powered netbook, NC215S has been announced for its availability now in the US.
The Samsung NC215S is available in the US on July 3 with a suggested retail price of $399. The netbook packs a 10.1-inch matte display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. Under the hood, it has 1GB of RAM and a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual-core processor.
The best of this netbook is it’s equipped with a solar panel that’s said to be able to provide extra one hour of battery life for two hours exposure to the sun for charging. Ideally, the netbook should be able to provide up to 14 hours of battery life, according to Samsung. But chances are it’ll provide much shorter battery life during cloudy or rainy days.
