A quick search online and I realised that my idea was not that original as there are countless results showing the solar powered laptop or something remotely similar incorporating the same idea (oh well, there goes my patent).
Solar powered laptops would work because they are portable and can be easily left in an area where they can catch natural light and recharge effortlessly. I saw one website with a man and his lightweight foldable solar powered panels which looked as though they could easily be plugged into a cable to power the laptop, this looked quite interesting....
It really would be nice to see more solar powered laptops for sale or in fact some kind of technology which could be adapted to mains powered laptops, that would be really cool. I guess this is known as green IT.
I've already seen solar powered mobile phone chargers and even seen a solar powered car, so it would be interesting to see solar powered laptops being sold, this would be especially useful if you are in an area where there is little to no electricity available to charge your mobile phone or laptop.
