How about a solar-powered, submersible laptop for $350?

Patrick Thibodeau | Aug. 19, 2013
WeWi Telecommunications will launch the laptop next week in Ghana; it could come to the U.S. as a Chromebook later this year.

The system will support 3G and 4G networks, along with Wi-Fi, and it has SIM card support. There is an Intel Atom chip, and a 320GB hard disk. The SOL can support 2GB to 4GB of memory.

There's really not much mark-up on the system, said Snir.

"We really want to get Africa connected and we really want to help developing countries," he said. "We're not out to make a huge amount for money from our laptops."
