GammaTech intros rugged Core i7-packing Durabook notebook

Durabook offers ruggedness without the bulkiness

GammaTech has introduced a ruggedized notebook that doesn't look the part, unlike competitors. The 15.6-inch Durabook S15C has a magnesium alloy case and conforms to 810G military standards. The hard drive is encased in a cable to absorb shocks and the keyboard is spill-resistant.

The optical drive bay has a lock-out that will prevent it from opening when the notebook is dropped. Double protection battery circuits prevent overheating and over-voltage damage.

Traditional notebook specs include a choice of Core i5 or Core i7 processors, stereo speakers and a pair of dual-channel DDR3 memory slots. The display has 1080p resolution, with a microphone, three USBs, Wi-Fi and a memory card reader integrated around the rest of the notebook. Bluetooth is optional.

Pricing or ship dates for the notebook haven't been revealed, however.
