GammaTech's 15.6" S15C2 Durabook Is Rugged To The Core

There's rugged, there's durable, and then there's GammaTech. This company has been pumping out wildly durable laptops for years, and their newest rugged piece of computing equipment follows that trend nicely. The Durabook S15C2 is an upgraded war-machine equipped with a 15.6" LCD (1920x1080), a magnesium alloy case that's 20 times stronger than ABS plastic, and is tested to Mil-Standard 810G for drop and shock resistance.

A flexible HDD cable design absorbs shock from drops, while anti-shock mounting technology around the LCD helps protect the screen from accidental damage. Additional protection is provided by the unit’s unique spill-resistant design that protects the LCD, keyboard and touchpad from spills seeping into sensitive interior parts. GammaTech’s exclusive optical-disk-tray lock prevents unintentional tray ejection due to drop and vibration.

Double-protection smart-battery circuitry prevents damage caused by current or voltage surges and overheating. The new model comes with a 9-cell battery for users in need of longer-holding charge times.


The GammaTech S15C2 is powered by Intel i7, Intel i5 processors, and has an Intel QM57 chipset. Two dual-channel DDR III SODIMM slots provide up to 8GB of memory. An internal optical drive slot accommodates DVD super-multi drives. Audio features include Intel-compliant high-definition audio, stereo speakers, and a built-in microphone.

Flexibility is built in to the S15C2, as it includes three USB ports, a serial port, integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet, and an Intel Mini-Express wireless LAN network connection. An optional Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR is also available. System security is provided by a Smart Card Reader slot, internal TPM 1.2 data security protection, as well as a Kensington lock connector and both Administrator and Boot password control.

Pricing is based on exactly how you want your machine specced out, but be honest, it won't be cheap for something this hardcore.

It would of been okay for me at one time, but now my eyes anin't so good. If I was younger though & I had the same ideas as I did, I would buy one.

I so want these for the one2one laptop program that I work in. It would certainly cut down on the repairs and keep working machines in kids hands.

This seems like a good buy! One of my cousins had a decent laptop but it was so fragile that it ended up snapping after only a year o.o I would definitely forward this to him since he's looking for a new one..and maybe if its not too expensive, I'll consider getting one too.
