GammaTech has released its latest rugged convertible notebook computer known as the D12C. Meant for road warriors, this lightweight device is capable of offering decent computing power while ensuring you remain mobile for ultimate flexibility and functionality. In an instant, the D12C can be turned into a tablet device. Having being tested to Military 810 standards, it is guaranteed to be drop, shock, dirt and spill resistant. Sounds more like the perfect tool for not only butterfingers but little kids who have far more destructive power in their inquisitive hands than a cyclone. The D12C itself comes with a 12.1-inch convertible TFT LED backlit touchscreen display, powered by an Intel i5-540UM processor and Intel HM55 chipset, sporting up to 8GB RAM and a built-in handle that makes it a snap to tote the unit around from one point to another. Multiple security features include TPM 1.2 technology, fingerprint scanner, BIOS administrator password/Boot password, and optional smart card reader. Sounds unbreakable from the physical and software point of view? Perhaps, for the ordinary layman, but this would be pretty nifty for those who are always less than careful with their electronics, although the initial “investment” made will definitely be much higher than a regular notebook.
