GammaTech announces Durabook R13C
GammaTech churns out tough devices such as notebooks, and one of their latest releases would be the Durabook R13C – which is essentially an upgraded version of model R13S, where the R13C is one tough cookie that has passed Military Standard 810G certification for drop, shock, and spill protection, in addition to shaking off explosive atmospheres, while being compliant with salt, fog, and freeze/thaw standards. This more or less makes it tougher than your average bespectacled engineer out there, and is perfectly suited for a wide range of applications, ranging from law enforcement to military, homeland security, field service, mining, and mobile workers who deal with treacherous outdoor environments.
To put it in a nutshell, the “GammaTech R13C takes a backseat to no one” when it comes to operating in harsh outdoor situations. Apart from its fully rugged character, you will also find it being compliant to the IP65 rating, making sure the enclosed portions remain completely protected against any contact with dust and water. Sporting a magnesium alloy case that is said to be 20 times stronger than ABS plastic, it has been pushed to the limits to the tough Military Standard 810G, where there is also an option to go for the Military Standard 461E/F certification.
Apart from that, the Durabook R13C will also feature a water-resistant backlit keyboard, accompanied by a 13.3” multi-touch shock-mounted, 1000 NIT LCD sunlight readable display with lock and eight-level adjustable LED. Running underneath the Durabook R13C’s hood would be an Intel Core Low Power i7-620LM vPro processor that ought to get the most demanding task done in a jiffy, carrying up to 8GB RAM, a 2.5” shock-mounted SATA hard drive with heater, and an ultra slim super-multi DVD drive. I/O ports thrown into the mix include a built-in RS-232 serial port with RS-422/485 optional, a low-voltage express card slot with a PC card slot option, a couple of USB ports, a SIM card connector, and an SD memory card reader amongst others.
To make sure it remains user-friendly as well despite the tough exterior, the R13C will come with an integrated ergonomic rugged handle, user quick-access buttons, and an integrated stylus.
