Better a week late than never. The solar powered Samsung NC215s netbook has finally arrived, up for pre-order at Amazon.com, priced at $399. No word on when it will ship although it was supposed to arrive on July 3, a week ago.
More pictures in the announcement post.
The Samsung NC215s is pretty much your typical Samsung netbook, except that it packs solar panels in the lid. Naturally, the best color to go with solar panels is black, and that’s the only color available. You’ll get a 10-inch 1024 x 600 matte display, a dual-core Atom N570 processor, 1GB of RAM, 250GB HDD, b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 10/100 LAN and Windows 7 Starter. It weighs 2.pounds / 1.3kg.
If you’d like the same netbook without the solar panels then that’ll be the Samsung NC110 that just went up for pre-order at Amazon.com as well for $329 – same specs, same color, minus the solar panels.
