Durabook U12Ci: Durable and Rugged

Rugged used to be a term used to describe cars built for the rough roads but not it applies to computers too. Durabook U12Ci is built for those who work in challenging environments where the elements are always a factor. This laptop can actually challenge the elements. It is MIL-STD-810G tested which means that when turned off, it can be dropped 26 times from four feet high and it will not get damaged by 3.4 ounces of water poured over the keyboard for two to five seconds.

Durabook U12Ci - always ready for the rough

The notebook is sturdier than the average 12-inch laptop. The rugged convertible design and the integrated stylus put it in a class of its own. When it is closed, it resembles a brawny fortress. The strong silver lid has pegs and grooves in every corner and the keyboard deck has an extendable handle attached. Beneath the handle is a plastic latch that keeps the lid shut. The lid and keyboard are both made of ABS plastic and it has a waterproof magnesium alloy chassis.

The inside has a solid black plastic frame around the 12-inch display. Hidden below the screen are utility buttons like the power key and brightness control buttons. On the right of the display is a biometric fingerprint sensor that may be used with software to start applications, log on and off and so on. When the laptop is turned over, the stylus can be seen on the underside alongside a protective battery cover. The one-of-a-kind Durabook U12Ci display can be twisted 180 degrees and folded back over the keyboard to transform it into a tablet.

Ideal industrial Fieldbus computer

The notebook's has a 3317U processor with 8GB of RAM and ITB 5400rpm. Even with daily use in challenging environments, the hard drive keeps going. Applications opened fast even when there were eight tabs running on Internet Explorer.

Durabook U12Ci also has security features that makes it an ideal industrial fieldbus computer. It comes with Protector Suite 2009 which is finger encryption software. After enrolling at least one finger, certain applications can be configured to work with the fingerprint. It is also possible to store email and other Web passwords in the Control Center to facilitate auto-fill after swiping a finger. Fingerprint authentication can also be used to access encrypted folders and files and switch the notebook on and off. A suite of other security features are available.

The 12.1 inch display with 1280 by 800 LCD digitizer matte touch-screen is quite bright and images come up sharp and clear. The resistive display responds to touch even the touch of a gloved hand. The stylus gives accurate results making it quick and easy to highlight texts and make selections. It is possible to use your own handwriting within apps like Sticky Notes.

Durabook U12Ci comes with protective covers for every port. It has an SD Card slot, USB 3.O Port, eSATA/USB 2.0 port, ExpressCard/34 card slot and inputs for headphones and microphone. The other side has a Smart Card slot and second USB port while the back has a VGA port, Kensington lock slot, dock for the power adapter and an Ethernet port.
