New Durabooks add toughness to larger screen sizes

Twinhead Durabooks

Laptops capable of surviving military-grade conditions are often expensive and small. General Dynamics' GoBook XR-1, for example, is limited to a 12-inch screen by its extra padding and is priced out of reach of many soldiers. A better alternative may be one of the two new models in Twinhead's Durabook line. The D13RI (pictured) has a magnesium alloy case and spill-proof keyboard that help it pass US military standards for shock and spill resistance, but yet has a 13.3-inch widescreen and weighs just under 6 pounds. The 14-inch D14RI also exists for those who would prefer a standard-ratio screen. Both models use older Celeron M or Pentium M processors and ship with 256MB of RAM, but they put rugged laptops within reach of many people through prices of $999 (D14RI) and $1099 (D13RI) and are available today.
