Sol Computer, California-based company and makers of tablet and netbooks equipped with Pixel Qi screens. The company’s notebooks and tablets are designed for customers ready to pay a premium price for an outdoor visible screen, including pilots and others that work outdoors.
The company is about to ship a new netbook based on Intel Classmate computer design. It is made up of rubberized elements and thick plastic allowing it to withstand a fall from few feet. The model will be featuring Pixel Qi screen, dual core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Processor, 160GB HD, 2GB RAM and a 2megapixel camera. It will run either Ubuntu or Windows 7 and will come with sufficient card slots and ports.
The price for this rugged netbook will be $950 almost double as that of a typical Classmate computer, but reinforced screen and rounded corners can take up a lot of beating in normal use. Looks like a tough netbook for handling various pressures.
