Averatec Voya 4473, 6494

Averatec today unveiled two semi-ruggedized laptops, the Voya 4473 14.1 inch model, and Voya 6494 15.4 inch widescreen version, both of which offer users a drop- and vibration-resistant design, with a spill-resistant keyboard and touchpad. The laptops are constructed from magnesium alloy, with corner bumpers and an anti-shock mounted hard drive. Specific pricing for the two models was not readily available, but Averatec says the Voya lineup starts at $1300.

The Voya 4473 includes Windows Vista Home Premium, an Intel Core Duo processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 120GB IDE hard disk, and 802.11a/b/g WiFi. An Intel GMA 950 processor powers graphics, while a 4-in-1 media reader and dual-layer DVD burner help with multimedia.

The Voya 6494 offers users 2GB of memory and a 250GB SATA hard drive, while the graphics processor is the more sturdy Intel GMA X3100. The 6494 also features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
