Dell Latitude XFR D630
Dell announced the availability of the Latitude XFR D630, the company’s first fully ultra-rugged notebook.
The Dell Latitude XFR D630 meets MIL-STD 810F standards from the Department of Defense for products that operate in extreme temperatures, moisture, altitude and more, and can withstand shocks and drops. In addition, a patent-pending thermal management system allows the XFR D630 to deliver “up to four times better graphics performance than the Panasonic CF-30”.
This rugged laptop is based on the Latitude D630 14.1-inch system and shares common images and components with the current line of Latitude notebooks. The XFR is configurable with the Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 2GHz and T7500 2.2GHz CPUs, up to 4GB of RAM, a 32GB or 64GB solid state drive, a Combo drive or DVD burner, and various wireless and mobile broadband options. The 14.1″ display is available in 500 nit Outdoor-viewable and 500 nit Outdoor-viewable Touchscreen versions, and is managed by the Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics.
The base system starts at $3,899 with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo and just 512MB of memory. It comes in a mainstream black or military-friendly desert tan color and ships in mid-April.
