Netbooks are not in vogue, and have not been so for quite the longest time already, but apparently, this has not stopped Sol Computer from releasing their latest netbook that is based on the Intel Classmate PC design. Basically, that translates to the new Sol Computer netbook living up to everyday “abuse” that you can throw at it, especially when it is in the hands of children. Constructed out of thick plastic with rubberized elements, the Sol Computer netbook would be able to shrug off drops onto the floor from a few feet in height. Other specifications of the Sol Computer netbook include an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and a 160GB hard drive that delivers will retail for approximately $950 thereabouts.
Not only that, Sol Computer is also working on a new 7″ Windows tablet as seen above, where a prototype of it was spotted at CES earlier this year in Las Vegas, and the soon-to-be released tablet has seen a refinement in its case design. This new tablet is said to come with the option of having 16GB to 64GB of storage space, 1GB to 2GB RAM, GPS navigation, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and most importantly, sports the 7″ Pixel Qi display that works brilliantly even under direct sunlight.
