Thinking that even those in the field need a whole lot of storage, GammaTech unveiled the D14 E-series, a rugged notebook that the manufacturer claims is the first rugged system to come with 1TB of storage.
The E-Series comes in three models (E1, E2, and E3), each with two shock-mounted 500GB disk drives with RAID controller, 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, four USB 2.0 ports, Windows 7 or Vista, and a 14.1″ WXGA/WXGA+ TFT display. GammaTech claims the E0 is “configured for maximum data capacity and performance,” the E1 provides real-time data backup and sync, and the E2 allows users to organize data into two separate 500GB hard disk drives.
E-Series is tested at Military 810F guidelines for drop, shock, spill, and dust protection, which is comparable with other rugged notebooks, including the Panasonic Toughbook. In addition, the E-Series models are encased by magnesium alloy, feature a spill-resistant keyboard with insulated system switches and the vital components are covered with anti-shock materials.
GammaTech did not announce pricing or availability.
