What do you do about power at such locations?

I'd like to find some solar solution to charge laptop batteries. I already 
have a solar answer for cell phone/iPod charging (the British Solio unit), 
but it can't produce enough power to handle a laptop. I'm hoping the lower 
power requirement of the Eee will be easier to deal with.

I also have a solar unit that can charge 4 AA batteries pretty quickly, so 
that takes care of my Nikon camera. 1 watt out of a PDA-sized folding unit 
(110 ma.).

Any pointers to remote area power solutions would be appreciated.
