If your daily work space is on a mountain top or some other tough terrain, an Ultrabook may not be what you need. Instead, GammaTech offers a line of rugged systems, including its new Durabook R8300, a 13.3-inch notebook that's certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G and IP64 specifications. It can withstand drops, getting wet, dust, temperature fluctuations, and other variables that are likely to occur in hostile environments.
With all due respect to Samsung, Apple, Asus, and others, your wimpy tablet has nothing on GammaTech's newly announced Durabook RT10C. Don't take offense to that, the RT10C is a burly slate designed to stand up to the rigors of industrial work and military applications. It's a thicker, rugged tablet that's able to withstand sandstorms, torrential downpours, and other harsh conditions.
We try to steer clear of explosive atmospheres, freezing conditions, and sand storms whenever possible, but if there's no way around it, you can bet we'll leave our Ultrabook at home. A more appropriate companion is a rugged PC designed for harsh environments, and GammaTech claims its new Durabook R13C convertible is the type of PC that's perfectly suited for law enforcement, military, homeland security, field service, mining, and mobile works in any type of outdoor environment.
GammaTech specializes in rugged notebooks and tablets that can withstand a beating, and their newest offering -- the Durabook S15C -- fits the same mold. Built around Intel's Core i3/i5/i7 platform, it's been tested to MIL-STD 810G specification for drop, shock and spill protection. It also includes safeguards like a Computrace-ready BIOS, Kensington Lock, and TPM 1.2 data security.
