XP on 8 NiMh AA's

NorhTec has announced the Gecko EduBook, which to our knowledge, is the only Windows XP system to be powered by AA batteries, which reminds us of Sony Walkmans some two decades ago.

The 8.9-inch netbook is powered by a 1GHz Xcore86 SoC, it has up to 1GB of soldered DDR2, and will be available with SSD or HDD storage. A Li-ion battery is also optional, and it should offer up to 50 percent more battery life than the 8 NiMh AA batteries included with the contraption. The AA's should apparently offer up to 8 hours endurance.
