By CBR Staff Writer

GammaTech Computer, a manufacturer of notebook PCs, has unveiled a new rugged DURABOOK D14RM with Intel Montevina platform.

According to GammaTech, the D14RM is designed for mobile professionals and is built with rugged features to protect the system from accidents that can damage sensitive interior notebook components. It measures 352mm X 256mm X 37-41mm and weighs around 2.5 kg.

The company said that the new notebook is tested using Military 810 F standard guidelines to insure protection against drop, shock, spill and dust and is protected by a magnesium alloy case that is expected to be 20 times stronger than ABS plastic. The new notebook comes with an anti-shock mounting design to protect its LCD and hard disk drive from damage and data loss that would usually occur with sudden shock or drop.

The company says that the D14RM features 14.1” WXGA display (1280×800 resolution), a smart card reader, fingerprint scanner and TPM 1.2 technology. It also comes with input/output rubber caps to provide for dust resistance. Other features include, 4 USB ports, HDMI port and LED lighted keyboard.
