SunBook netbook ships with Pixel Qi transflective display

A new netbook from Clover Systems has surfaced called the SunBook. The little machine is the first 10-inch netbook to ship with the Pixel Qi transreflective display. If you have forgot what that fancy display is, the thing lets you turn the backlight off for viewing in the sunlight or any other time you want to save power.

The netbook was spied at CES by the geeks from Liliputing and they say it looks like a netbook with an e-ink screen with the backlight off. With the backlight on it looks like any other netbook. The big downside to adding the fancy screen to the netbook is cost.

The SunBook will set you back $795, most of it just for the screen. The other specs are average netbook. They include a 1024 x 600 resolution display, 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 250GB HDD. The machine can be had with 3G and 4G modems and battery life is 8-12 hours depending on the battery.
