Riyad managed to find a company that makes plug-in solar panels, but I found something even cooler - a laptop with solar panels built into the top of the lid. The manufacturer is ECS, one of the biggest motherboard manufacturers in the world. But ECS also makes a lot of other computer related products such as laptops.

ECS also had its new EZ-buddy 2 on display which is a pretty neat looking SFF system. It is available in several different colours and features a front mounted LCD as well as side mounted memory card readers and ports.

On the motherboard side ECS is trying to go upmarket. On display were several new boards for both Intel’s upcoming socket 775 and AMD’s new socket 939.
