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.

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.
