She ain't pretty -- far from it, actually -- but she'll definitely get the job done in uncertain conditions. GammaTech's latest convertible laptop has just been revealed, with the D12C bringing along a 12.1-inch LED-backlit WXGA touchscreen, a Core i5-540UM processor, up to 8GB of memory, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, WiFi, optional Bluetooth / smart card reader and an integrated carry handle. The actual exterior is built much like a tank, meeting stringent MIL-STD-810G requirements surrounding drop and shock resistance. There's also a spill resistant design that sheds water around the keyboard, touchpad, speakers and wireless and power switches, and every last port is fully dust resistant. You'll also find a 2.5-inch slot suitable for your choice of HDD or SSD, and unless you specify otherwise, you'll be getting a fresh copy of Windows 7. Mum's the word on pricing, but as these things tend to go, we're guessing you'll be paying a stiff premium for the rigidity.
