I live in Greece, and my EEE 4g Surf is great and all, but I wish I could use something other than the mains, solar power would be great for me on the move and typing at a cafe, hopefully for longer than 3 hours with wifi and sound off, with brightness turned down.
Ugly looks aside, and fairly poor spec, for that price it's better than you would expect, as anything solar powered is expensive.
Can anyone tell me why we don't have a portable solar panel which you can then plug your computer into?
I'm not talking about those cool little FreeLoader ones which charge phones, mp3 players etc. Netbooks etc obviously won't charge off USB, but will need to use the socket like with the mains, so why isn't a solar panel marketed like this? Problems converting the energy?
