Anyone who’s ever attempted to use a laptop on a sunny summer day can surely tell you that direct sunlight is not your friend — that’s why we like to ride out the season in our dark basement apartments. If only there were a way to harness the ’s rays for good, instead of evil — like powering your PC while you’re off doing whatever it is that normal people do when it’s sunny outside. First introduced for the African market, ’s will be hitting in early August for 13,999 rubles ($479). The sports a lid almost entirely monopolized by a panel, which contributes to an overall estimated battery life of 14.5 hours. The NC215S packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom dual-core processor, 250GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM into a 2.9 pound frame. It’s almost enough to make us want to venture out into the sunlight. Almost.

Update: The folks at Liliputing have been told the NC215S is heading stateside on July 3rd, with a suggested retail price of $399, so it looks like you’ll need to stay planted in your patience for just a few days more.
