SOL Solar-Powered Laptop comes to Australia!

Cutting-edge sustainable technology is what we’re all about here at the G-Layer, and we’re always on the lookout for new exciting developments, so when we discovered the SOL solar laptop we were overwhelmed by the possibilities this tough little computer offers to our sun-drenched country!

The 10-hour laptop’s battery  is charged by a built-in solar panel (detachable).

SOL can be connected to the internet using the 4G network or an optional satellite module, opening up the world wide web to communities, schools and workers all over Australia.
This revolutionary product will also feature a GPS, HD graphics and an integrated webcam.

Using the latest in nanotechnology construction, and priced at a sum nearly anyone can afford, we believe this product will revolutionise life in the outback, which is why we had to bring it to our customers at the first opportunity!

G-layer think-tank values ethical Technology

Sol laptop was designed by WeWi, a Canadian company,  to be used in places such as Africa where electricity is not always readily available, and will be sold in Australia by G-Layer at a discounted rate to schools and educators. While the retail price is yet to be confirmed, we can commit that SOL not only will be affordable, but it can even save you money on your energy bill.

We believe this is exactly the kind of innovation and forward-thinking that Australia needs, so G-layer jumped at the chance to bring the solar laptop to our country.

It will be available on our web store starting from December.

As well as bringing a world of new opportunities to isolated students, the Sol laptop has a vast number of applications for outback medical centres, remote workers, four-wheel-drivers and adventurers.

SOL Marine, the rugged version, is actually submersible. Indeed it will not give its best under water, but it will be the natural companion of outback professionals and lone workers.
