Durabook announces a new version of its ultra-rugged U11 tablet with a detachable keyboard
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 durabook.com, starting at US$2,399.
