Solar Powered NC215 Netbook From Samsung: $399

Wow, a solar powered netbook. I never thought I’d be hearing those terms in the same sentence, and especially not as soon as now, but it’s true folks. Samsung will soon release a 10.1″ netbook with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and a nice matte finish.

Hardware wise, there’s nothing too special about this new machine and it includes the often cited Intel Atom N570 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 250GB hard drive.

But the fact that it is solar powered should get folks happy, especially those who aren’t blessed to be around wall outlets all day long.

According to Digitimes, Acer is working on a slideout Android tablet. No clue on whether the QWERTY keyboard will be similar to a laptop keyboard or not, but I am really hoping it will have laptop-style keys.

Aside from having a 10″ screen, we are told that it will be fueled by an ARM processor and will be manufactured by Compal Electronics. Although we are unsure of the exact storage, I would guess that the base model will come with 16GB of storage and start around $450.

How Would You Like A $70 Android Netbook?

Newegg’s got some great deals, I’ve been buying from them ever since I started my PC building hobby at 16 years of age. What’s great about the site is that its got tons of reviews from customers like you and I, who love technology and have opinions about the stuff they buy (who doesn’t?)

Browsing through the various computers on Newegg, I recently stumbled upon the Augen GENBOOK NBA7400A for $69.99. It’s powered by Android Donut, which is obviously a few generations behind the curb, but other than that it seems like a notebook that will do the basics.
