Customizable Rugged Durabook Features Smart Card Reader
GammaTech Computer Corp
. adds to its line of cost-effective, high-performance, rugged mobile notebook computers the Durabook S15C2. With many additional significant features and options, this next-generation version of the company's S15C notebook provides the screen resolution and graphic processing power needed to run graphic-intense applications.
With the inclusion of nVidia Optimus technology and an Intel integrated graphics controller, the GammaTech S15C2 provides outstanding high-resolution 3D graphics. Completely automatic, the Optimus technology not only delivers high-quality visuals but also extends battery life without the user having to change any settings.
The unit comes with a full high-definition (FHD) 15.6" LCD display (1920 x 1080 resolution) for graphic-intense situations, as it offers incredible image detail and crisp reproduction.
The S15C2 notebook is built to GammaTech's tough standards. Its magnesium alloy case is 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 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.
