Have you heard about Durabooks? Allow us to introduce you. Durabook (formerly known as Gammatech Computer Corporation) has been in the computer manufacturing industry since the late 1980’s, and began their production of rugged computers in 2000. With 35+ total years of experience, Durabook creates some of the highest quality rugged computers and tablets on the market-making them a top competitor of Panasonic and Dell. Durabook’s laptops and tablets are tough, yet multipurpose, which makes them the perfect tools for professionals in the military, public safety, and oil and gas industries. Did you know that even the Coral Reef Research Foundation has chosen to use Durabooks for over 15 years? It’s true. While Durabooks are not submersible, they are durable enough to handle being around sea air, saltwater, humidity and rough seas. For more information, check out Durabook’s article here.
Rugged Tablets vs. Consumer Tablets
Why buy a rugged tablet instead of a consumer-grade tablet? Easy. They are built for tough jobs. If you work (or play) in a demanding environment-especially outdoors, and you need a lightweight computer, a rugged tablet is perfect for you. Rugged Durabook tablets don’t have to be babied like consumer-grade tablets- in fact, Durabook’s rugged tablets are rated to withstand drops up to six feet, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, dust, and moisture. Durabook tablets also meet the same Military Standard and Ingress Protection ratings as rugged laptops. These exclusive ratings include MIL STD-461G and IP65 (more on those ratings here). Moreover, these tablets feature multi-touch screens which allow you to use a stylus and gloved, dirty or wet hands without compromising the tablet’s tactile ability. Lastly, you wouldn’t think that the words “lightweight” and “rugged” could coexist, but Durabook tablets make it happen, as they weigh less than three pounds. When was the last time you saw an ordinary tablet with these specs?
Durabook tablets provide many extra features that enhance and compliment their ruggedness including:
- High resolution Display
- Connections and ports such as: USB, Micro SD, HDMI, and Bluetooth
- Easily removable SSD
- Integrated microphone
Considering the environmental impact of the tech you buy is important. That’s why we are happy to share that rugged Durabook tablets are RoHS, REACH, and EPEAT certified. These certifications ensure that Durabook tablets meet and/or exceed green tech standards for energy conservation, materials selection, and product longevity.
Please be aware that it might be a wait before you receive your Durabook Tablet. Due to slowdowns in manufacturing (as a result of the pandemic), the average lead time on Durabook products is 6-8 weeks or longer. We appreciate your understanding and patience at this time.
These Durabook products are brand new and made to order. Therefore, they are non-returnable.
