NorhTec Netbbok Runs On AA Batteries

Most of us get excited at a new netbook that has a 6-cell or even 9-cell battery, but here’s one that harkens back to the day of the Sega Game Gear. The NorhTec netbook will be powered by eight AA batteries despite boasting its own internal power supply. Known as the Gecko EduBook, you will get the following specifications :-

  • 1GHz Xcore 86 (Vortex86MX SoC) processor
  • Up to 1GB RAM
  • 8.9″ LED backlit display with 1024 x 600 resolution
  • SD memory card slot
  • Hard drive
  • Ethernet, USB 2.0 (four ports) and VGA connectivity

Eight AA batteries ought to keep you running for up to six hours or so, depending on the paces you put it through. You can pick up the Gecko EduBook for $200 this July and it will come bundled with a Wi-Fi module and an 8GB SD card.
