PC Consumes 8.5 Watts, Has No Moving Parts:
someone has taken that boatload of cash and decided to put together the Solo Computer, a roughly-hewn prototype of a power-sipping PC with no moving parts that needs just 8.5 watts of solar power to run. That’s a fraction of the roughly 300 watts sucked up by garden-variety PCs here in the energy-wasting First World.
This is closer to the technologies that the $100 computer needs, too bad it is $1200. However, as I’ve noted before technology is only one issue in computers for development and from my standpoint it is the smallest issue.
