If you've found yourself computing more and more outside
probably also found yourself struggling to really see what's going on.
Most notebook displays, particularly those of the glossy variety, are
nearly impossible to see when in direct sunlight, and that's exactly
why Duros is adding a daylight-readable panel to its refreshed 8404
The device, which is also being revamped with an Intel Atom processor,
now boasts an 8.4" sunlight-viewable SVGA touchscreen, a solid-aluminum
chassis and non-rotating compact flash drive. More specifically, the
LED sunlight-viewable display achieves brightness of 1,100 nit and a
120-degree viewing angle. Granted, the 8404 is primarily designed for
outdoor applications in the workplace, but if your own business takes
you to the great outdoors, it may be a solid option. There's no mention
of a price for new device, but with luxuries such as a hot-swappable
battery, we expect it to set you back a noticeable amount.
