iUnika GYY Solar-powered Notebook
by Mark R
Netbooks are good to have around, aren’t they? And solar-power, that would save us a lot of energy if we used it on more of our mobile devices, wouldn’t it? Okay, enough of the rhetorical question lead-ins, what am I getting at?
A solar-powered netbook, of course. A European technology company known as iUnika has perfected one, and this product, also known as the GYY, is certainly nice enough to be the first solar powered netbook.
Actually, I don’t know if the GYY is the first solar-powered netbook, but it is certainly energy efficient enough, not to mention light. Please chime in with a comment if you know for sure that the GYY is the first, and feel free to check out the specs after the jump.
With something new like this, you can’t expect too much memory. The user will find about 128MB of RAM, plus a 64GB SSD drive. The CPU is 400MHz, and the operating system is some “proprietary version of Linux”. The screen is a 8-inch WVGA with an 800 x 480 resolution.
The iUnika GYY will be available in the European market in June for about 160 euros. Assuming it will come to the United States, that price would probably translate to about $200.
