GammaTech Unveils High-capacity Durabook D14E Rugged Laptops

Ryan Whitwam

GammaTech is poised to release the Durabook D14 E-series ultra rugged laptops. Overall the new model is fairly similar to the older D14RM, but this one will come equipped with a full 1TB of hard drive space. The manufacturer claims the system will be resistant to drops, spills, and dust accumulation thanks to the magnesium case and anti-shock materials. That’s a lot of storage that you can toss around with reckless abandon.

Other specs include a 14.1 inch widescreen display, Core 2 Duo CPU, and up to 8GB of RAM. The terabyte of storage comes in the form of two 7200RPM 500GB hard drives. Customers will be able to choose either RAID-0 or RAID-1 configurations; users may also forego RAID all together and use the disks independently.

GammaTech has not announced pricing yet, but expect it to be high. The D14RM ran about $1500 without the huge hard drive capacity. Can you see yourself ever buying one of these rugged laptops for business or personal use?
