Joining the fight to give users a computer no matter what kind of work they do, Dell created in the first half of 2008 their Latitude XFR D630, an-above average rugged notebook that clearly shows Dell's attempt at entering the market of army-oriented equipment.
With its solid die cast magnesium chassis and shock mounted solid state hard drive, the XFR D630 is most definitely a tough nut to crack. The XFR meets Department of Defense MIL-STD 810F standards for operation in extreme temps, moisture and altitude. And don't think about trying to break the screen either because the XFR has a reinforced LCD Assembly, along with all the rest of the Armored Protection System's components.
Operating at temperatures below 20 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the device will survive conditions which not even the strongest man could stand for long. It also resists moisture, of course, as well as exposure to dust, dirt, humidity or salt fog. It is shock resistant, drop resistant, vibration resistant, crash shock resistant as well as being able to operate at an altitude of 15.000 feet.
And with the QuadCool Thermal Management System, the XFR D630 will not be prone to overheating either. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM and features a shock mounted 80GB drive or a 64GB solid state drive, making it pretty powerful as well as rugged.
Its rugged 14.1 inch LCD supports a WXGA resolution of 1280x800 and the user is sure to stay connected almost all the time thanks to its Wireless LAN, Bluetooth and GPS capabilities. A quick recharge battery system as well as superior battery lifetime assures the user that his laptop will not fail him when he needs it most. It comes with Windows XP (or Vista) preinstalled and also with Dell's Quickset Software suite.
