Last we heard from Stealth Computer, it was gettin' down with its very own Core 2 Duo-equipped mini PC. Now, the company is back to doing what it does best: rugged. The all new Stealth NW-2000 Rugged PC isn't for the faint of heart nor those without a degree in weightlifting, but if you're looking for a new machine to withstand scenarios only found in the Rambo series, this probably fits the bill.The dual-mode machine can easily convert from a traditional notebook to a tablet PC (and back again), with the display supporting touch input for in-the-field doodling. Naturally, the NW-2000 rugged mobile machine meets Military Standard MIL-810F specifications for shock and vibration. The whole machine... Read more...
If you've found yourself computing more and more outside, you've 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 rugged tablet. 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... Read more...

Ever had the desire to place a standard UMPC-type computer within a rugged chassis and check your email while trudging through mud, rain and sleet? Trimble has, and it's making sure that those of you needing a rugged portable computer don't go away empty handed. The all new Trimble Tablet is described as a rugged, versatile and fully connected handheld computer for heavy and highway and marine construction professionals. Of course, you could replace that last bit with "for anyone who computes in extreme environments" to make it more applicable to you.We're told that it was engineered specifically to take on the perils of the construction job site. That means it's "extremely rugged, with an IP67... Read more...
When you think ThinkPad, what do you think? Plain, classic, traditional, all-business, etc.? Probably, but the word "sturdy" is apt to be throw in that mix as well. Lenovo has made it a point of focus to always ensure that the business-minded ThinkPad line was well equipped to handle dozens of airport transfers, being dropped in airport security lines and enduring the daily stresses of the corporate world. Now, the company is coming out and shouting from the roof tops that its ThinkPads are amongst the toughest in the land -- for "non-rugged" notebooks, anyway. The ThinkPad X200, X301, X200s, X200 Tablet, T400, T500, R400 and SL300 laptops have all met a "barrage of military specifications tests... Read more...
Generally speaking, all solid state drives are pretty rugged. Or, at least they're designed to withstand more severe shock and vibration than rivaling hard disk drives.

What attendees will likely see is the Triton FSE (Fast/Secure Erase), which has been purpose built for ultra rugged military and defense applications where data integrity and security is an utmost concern....

Difficult though it may be to believe, the product you see enlarged below is actually a computer. Not a bloated GPS device, not a rough and tough digital photo frame, but a bona fide PC. Glacier Computer's new Everest E4000 is quite the unique beast, acting as a touchscreen-based computer for specialized, rugged environments that can't afford the luxuries of keyboards and mice. As Dan Poisson, Glacier Director of Engineering puts it: "The E4000 configuration has been re-engineered to incorporate the features most commonly requested by warehouse, freight, and shop floor customers." Honestly, we see this machine as having an even broader reach than that. Just think of the possibilities here in... Read more...
