Fremont, CA, December 17, 2011 --( GammaTech Computer Corp., a major international manufacturer and supplier of innovative notebook and tablet computers, has added another model to its line of fully rugged convertible computers. The Durabook R13C, an upgraded version of model R13S, passes Military Standard 810G certification for drop, shock, and spill protection, plus explosive atmosphere, salt, fog, and freeze/thaw standards. It is perfectly suited for a variety of applications, including law enforcement, military, homeland security, field service, mining, and mobile workers in any type of outdoor environment.

“The R13C incorporates many additional features or enhancements that were not available when the R13S was introduced,” stated Jen Chen, GammaTech president. “The result is a product that is built to stand up to some of today’s harshest environments. When it comes to working with a computer in rugged outdoor areas, the GammaTech R13C takes a backseat to no one.”

For workers making first-time visits or trips to unfamiliar locations, a built-in GPS receiver puts them in touch with their favorite GPS navigation software.

For ultimate in-the-field flexibility and functionality, a pivot hinge allows the R13C to quickly and easily transform into a tablet PC. A quick release mechanism allows the HDD to be removed in seconds, if the necessity is ever called for.
