rugged laptop of late? If so, you've probably become overwhelmed with grief, likely due to the fact that 99.95 percent of them are both a) huge and b) unsightly. GammaTech's got a better idea: craft a rugged, shock-proof lappie that actually looks like every other 15.6-inch laptop on the market. Fancy that! The outfit's new Durabook S15C is its latest in a long line of field-tested machines, with this guy using a magnesium alloy case that's 20 times stronger than ABS plastic. We're told that it's tested to Mil-Standard 810G for drop and shock resistance, and there's a flexible HDD cable that'll absorb shock from drops. Moreover, an anti-shock mounting technology around the LCD helps to protect the screen from accidental damage, and if you're curious about the innards, here goes: there's the option for Core i5 / i7, a pair of dual-channel DDR3 RAM slots, an internal optical drive, a 15.6-inch Full HD display, three USB sockets, a serial port, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and WiFi. Mum's the word on pricing, but considering that you'll need to dial 'em up to place an order, we highly doubt all that ruggedness will come cheap.
