The latest version of the 10th-gen Intel-powered Durabook U11 is rated for state-of-the-art security and resistance to the elements, as with its immediate forebears. However, this one is the first to convert to a 2-in-1 with its own detachable keyboard. The new IP65-rated full-size 88-key accessory might make the tablet even more amenable to extreme working conditions that might change often.

Durabook pitches its PCs at industry, construction and medical professionals due to their particularly ruggedized cases, "Department of Defense-level" security and proprietary DynaVue technology rated to enhance outdoor readability in their displays. Therefore, the OEM asserts that even its 11.6-inch tablet can be used even in conditions such as those of emergency or conflict-zone medicine.

Now, Durabook insists that the U11 is even more suited to these environments with its new detachable keyboard. It still has 10th-gen Intel CPUs, up to 16GB of RAM and SSDs that can be removed and replaced via a user-accessible bay.

It also has the MIL-STD-810G rating to withstand 6-foot drops, shocks, vibrations, rain, dust, sand, humidity, being frozen or thawed or exposure to operating temperatures of - 4°F to 140°F, as well as MIL-STD-461G certification for resistance to electromagnetic interference.

However, it also now comes with a custom-designed detachable keyboard, complete with a handy carrying handle. It has options for membrane or rubber backings for its 88 keys, which are backlit in both cases. The U11 2-in-1 is now available from, starting at US$2,399.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-20 is available on Amazon
