Augmentix unveils extra-rugged 2.4GHz notebook

updated 12:55 pm EDT, Mon August 20, 2007

Augmentix XTG630

Augmentix today revealed the XTG630 in a bid to offer one of the fastest toughened notebooks available to date. While the 14-inch widescreen PC can use the latest Santa Rosa-era Core 2 Duo processors (up to 2.4GHz) and supports both X3100 video and 802.11n Wi-Fi, the system is designed to survive the roughest use possible in the field; the XTG's magnesium shell meets military-grade levels of dust- and waterproofing as well as shock tolerance and temperature. Its 14-inch screen is also specifically coated to improve viewability in direct sunlight.

The system also has the unique benefit of being based around a much more common platform, Augmentix says: the XTG630 runs the same basic disk image as a Dell Latitude D630, which lets anyone with the software restore the system from scratch or add Dell accessories knowing they will work. Mobile broadband over EVDO or HSDPA is an option alongside the standard fingerprint and smart card readers.

Regarded as a custom-order PC by the company, the XTG630 doesn't have a publicly listed price and will vary depending on features and whether the order is for individuals or a group. Any system, however, is available in either a more conventional black or desert tan.
