This isn't your grandmother's notebook.
Ultrabooks are sleek and sexy, but good luck finding one that meets MIL-STD-810G certification for shock and drop resistance. If you work in a tough and tumble environment, you'll be better served with a rugged laptop, and GammaTech hopes you'll give its new Durabook SA14 a long and hard look. The SA14 is a 14-inch laptop that lasts up to 11 hours on a single charge and can take a beating when needed.
Let's start with what we know about the hardware. The SA14 comes with either an Intel Core i5 3360M or Core i7 3520M processor. It also has USB 3.0 ports, integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS (optional), and AMD Radeon MXM graphics (optional).
On the safety and security side, the SA14 features TPM 1.2 data security technology, a Kensington lock connector, Computrace asset management and data protection, a fingerprint scanner, and level IP43 dust and waterproof resistance.
The SA14 will be available in Q2 starting at $1,499.
