Hello again awesome Linux community! A month ago we revealed SOL to the world. SOL is a solar laptop that runs on Linux. It runs on direct sunlight! Free Software & Free energy
. SOL is rugged, waterproof and very affordable at $350-$400. It was created to enhance education in developing countries. SOL is first launching in Ghana this month. and you are all invited to attend the event (August 20.2013 - 10:00AM International Conference Center)
A lot (A LOT haha) of people have asked a few question about SOL - so here's one image that answers two: Yes, SOL will come in various colors (shown here is SOL Black Mamba model) and Yes, there are 4 PV panel powering the unit.
SOL's website (www.solaptop.com
) will be updated next week - We've promised to the community product specifications, better product views and prices and you will have those coming in the website's update :)
In the meantime, we've done some interviews and media if you're interested in hearing more about SOL, seeing more images etc. do a quick search, or ask questions here. I'll be happy to answer all questions.
