Latitude notebook from Dell goes rugged.

Dell : 05 March, 2008  (New Product)
Rugged laptop added to the Dell Latitude family providing robust computing for demanding environments without losing the performance or quality of the established range.
Dell has announced its first fully rugged laptop, the Latitude XFR D630. The system is one of the only ones in its class to simplify IT with seamless integration into existing infrastructure and deliver extreme durability without compromising performance. The rugged laptop, intended for government and commercial customers, is available in the US and starts at $3,899.

The Latitude XFR D630 meets MIL-STD 810F standards from the Department of Defence for products that operate in extreme temperatures, moisture and altitude, to name a few. The system shares common images and components with Dell's current line of Latitude laptops to greatly simplify deployment and maintenance. Also, a patent-pending thermal management system allows the rugged laptop to use latest generation technology and deliver up to four times better graphics performance than the Panasonic CF-30.

"The Latitude XFR D630 represents a tectonic shift towards simplicity in the rugged laptop market," said Brett McAnally, director, Dell Product Group. "We are taking a multi-dimensional approach that focuses on simplified deployment, service and durability without sacrificing performance. Major competitors focus their efforts on 'rugged' only."

The Latitude XFR D630 leads major rugged laptop vendors in standard service with Next Business Day On-Site service for major components inside the laptop. Competitors require customers to return systems for service. Dell's rugged laptop also allows users to service many components in the field.

The Latitude XFR D630 includes several features that keep users productive:.

* Five times more data durability of leading competitors with solid state drives.
* Latitude ExpressCharge charges batteries at least 30 minutes faster than competitors.
* Outdoor readable screen at 500 nits.
* Integrated resistive touch technology to easily interface with the system.
* Shock isolated mounting to help protect hard drive, LCD and core electronic elements.
* Dual locking butterfly mechanisms for easy access to components.
* Sealed keyboard designed to withstand driving rain and dust.
