GammaTech Computer has unveiled 13.3-inch notebook computer DuraBook R13S, which it claims to transform to a Tablet PC for flexibility. It comes with an Intel Core2 Duo processor, measures 13.5(W) X 10(D) X 2.3(H) and weighs around 9.4 lbs.
According to GammaTech, the new notebook computer comes with a 9-cell lithium-ion battery providing approximately 7 hours of functionality and features a GPS Receiver, bluetooth, super-multi DVD burner optical drive, HD audio, built-in speaker and array microphone, support for Intel GME965 integrated graphics and an onboard smart card reader.
The company claims that the new device is humidity and water resistant, and includes a waterproof keyboard and touchpad. It is also designed for maximum dust-resistance and withstands extreme wind-borne dust and sand conditions.
In addition, the new notebook computer with 13.3-inch convertible screen includes a sunlight-readable option that compensates for glare and reflected sunlight. It is encased in magnesium alloy for concussion protection and offers security with an internal Trusted Platform Module (TPM1.2) Security Chip, hard drive encryption capability, support for HDD user password protection, and fingerprint recognition technology.
Steven Gau, president of GammaTech, said: Our mission is to equip mobile rugged computer users in harsh environments with the ultimate functionality and durability they need to do their jobs. That’s why we offer the Gammatech DuraBook R13S. And we offer the Two-in-One Notebook+Tablet PC at a significantly lower cost than other fully rugged notebooks in the market that do not provide the Tablet PC features.
