Solar powered Netbooks emerge

 


iUnika has shown off four new netbooks at a Free Knowledge Foundation sponsored LibreMeeting in Madrid, including a couple of super eco-friendly models sporting solar panels and made from bioplastic.

 

The little eco warriors costing between 130-160 Euros (about $180-$220), weigh in at just 700 grams, boast a 400MHz processor and run Linux.
