SunBook netbook brings Pixel Qi display for use in sunlight

updated 10:20 pm EST, Mon January 31, 2011

New display raises price up to $795

Clover Systems has introduced a new netbook, the SunBook, featuring a 1024x600 Pixel Qi display that can be viewed in direct sunlight. In bright ambient lighting without the backlight activated, the Pixel Qi display takes on an appearance similar to that of e-book readers with grayscale electronic-paper displays. When the backlight is used under dim lighting or dark environments, users can then view content in full color.

Aside from the display, the SunBook offers a standard set of netbook features components including an Atom 1.66GHz CPU, 1GB of DDR2 memory, multi-touch trackpad, and a 250GB hard drive. Windows 7 Starter comes standard, while users can add an optional 3G/4G modem.

The company suggests users can expect the battery to last up to 12 hours when the backlight is not activated, though the time will likely be cut significantly when the device is used in dark conditions.

The SunBook is now available directly from the company for $795.
