Dell's new Latitude XFR D630 is the company's first fully ruggedized laptop.
The Latitude XFR D630 meets MIL-STD 810F standards from the Department of Defense for products that operate in extreme temperatures, moisture and altitude, to name a few. The system shares common images and components with Dell’s current line of Latitude laptops to greatly simplify deployment and maintenance. Also, a patent-pending thermal management system allows the rugged laptop to use latest generation technology and deliver up to four times better graphics performance than the Panasonic CF-30.

“The Latitude XFR D630 represents a tectonic shift towards simplicity in the ruggedized laptop space,” said Brett McAnally, director, Dell Product Group. “We are taking a multi-dimensional approach that focuses on simplified deployment, service and durability without sacrificing performance. Major competitors focus their efforts on ‘rugged’ only.”


Features:
  • Five times more data durability of leading competitors with solid state drives4
  • Latitude ExpressCharge charges batteries at least 30 minutes faster than competitors
  • Outdoor readable screen at 500 nits
  • Integrated resistive touch technology to easily interface with the system
  • Shock isolated mounting to help protect hard drive, LCD and core electronic elements
  • Dual locking butterfly mechanisms for easy access to components
  • Sealed keyboard designed to withstand driving rain and dust
  • The rugged laptop, intended for government and commercial customers, is available today in the U.S. and starts at $3,899.
