Battery life is invariably a going to be a problem for any sort of portable computer. But what if a computer is capable of collecting its own solar power?
That's just what Spanish company iUnika did: their new line of GYY netbooks sport a solar panel, saving you the need of recharging your battery (at least in the day time, anyways.) In a sunny country like Spain many GYY owners should be able to go significant stretches of time without having to plug in.
The GYY runs a GNU/Linux OS, a low-power 400 MHz processor, a 8-inch 800x480 display, a slim 128MB of RAM, and up to 64GB of flash memory.
The GYY also has even more green credentials: it is constructed out of bioplastics, and other organic, biodegradable materials.
All this green love doesn't come with a whopping price tag either -- the GYY is expected to sell for a bit under $200 USD. GYY arrives next month.
