The 14-inch laptop will have a 1000-nit FHD touchscreen, up to 25 hours of battery life, multiple expansion options, up to a GeForce GTX GPU, and plenty of I/O ports.

Durabook specializes in rugged tablets and laptops like the R11 or S15AB designed for professional or industrial environments. These sturdy systems compete directly with the likes of the Dell Rugged series, Panasonic Toughbook series, or the Acer Enduro series.

The latest MIL-STD 810G rugged Windows laptop from Durabook is the upcoming 14-inch Z14I equipped with an 8th gen U-series Intel CPU and up to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU. The latter is particularly notable because most devices in this category do not carry fast GTX graphics options. Professionals who work with more GPU-intensive applications might find the fast GPU here handy.

Outside of graphics, the display can be configured with a 1000-nit backlight for better outdoor visibility and a proprietary PCIe x4/x1 compartment box for adding more storage. I/O ports and features are impressive given the relatively small 14-inch screen size.

The Z14I is now available starting at $3600 USD with three-year warranty as standard. More information on the laptop can be found on its official product page here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
