Just yesterday Dell introduced its first truly tough notebook computer and today we have ARMOR from ruggedness major DRS. The ARMOR line up include two machines — the 12.1″ C12 Convertible Notebook and the 10.4″ X10 Tablet (pictured above). “DRS has extensive experience developing systems that meet and exceed military requirements and survive extremely harsh environments around the globe. Whether it’s a soldier in need of mission-critical information in the desert or a utility worker in need of automation in the field, ARMOR rugged mobile computing devices survive the rough conditions they face on a daily basis,” said Michael J. Sheehan, president of DRS Technologies’ Tactical Computing strategic business unit.

This new line of rugged mobile computers offers data protection technology, “anywhere” connectivity and sunlight readable display options, making these computers the ideal solution for industrial and government customers interested in ensuring situational awareness, protecting valuable data and/or increasing worker efficiency.

Housed in a specially designed aluminum DuraCase chassis with ShutOut sealing technology, the ARMOR X10 Tablet meets IP 66 level protection from dust, dirt, water and other damaging elements while still offering no-flap input connections and hot-swappable battery access without the need for tools.
