GammaTech DURABOOK S15AB Redefines What a Semi-Rugged Notebook Is All About

Fremont, CA – December 6, 2016 – GammaTech Computer Corp., a major international manufacturer and supplier of innovative rugged and semi-rugged notebook and tablet computers, has the perfect solution for users looking for a large 15” semi-rugged notebook: its new DURABOOK S15AB.  The S15AB is currently the only 15” semi-rugged computer on the market, is the thinnest and lightest device in its class, and is perfect for workers in industries such as the military, public safety, and transportation.

“Designed with Windows 10 Professional operating system, the latest Intel® 5th Gen CPU, and at 15.6” the largest display of any semi-rugged laptop, our S15AB notebook provides performance that is second to none,” commented Tom Wang, GammaTech president. “Couple that with the fact that it meets outdoor durability requirements with its IP5X dust rating, MIL-STD 810G rugged certification, spill-resistant keyboard, and magnesium-alloy chassis prove the unit offers more toughness than normal commercial laptops and other semi-rugged PCs.”

With an exceptionally large 15.6” full HD (1920×1080) LCD display, the S15AB offers a sensational viewing experience by displaying more viewing content with finer details. An HDMI interface for high-definition digital video and audio output is capable of supporting resolutions up to 4K.

Incredibly light at just 5.73 pounds and ultrathin at only 1.1”, the DURABOOK S15AB is the lightest, thinnest model in its class. A built-in ergonomic hard handle makes the unit easy to carry whenever it’s time for a road trip, and an RF hardware switch easily turns any wireless communications on or off.

Outstanding performance is assured with the unit’s advanced 5th generation Broadwell Core™ i processor and HD Graphics 5500 package. HDD and SSD capacity of up to 1TB provide plenty of storage, and a built-in SD card slot and support for an SDXC card reader offer even more storage capability. Among its many I/O ports are two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connectors that provide ample opportunities for plugging in an array of handy peripherals.

Other Features

Keeping up with the workload on the road is never a problem with the S15AB. Its 7980mAh Lithium polymer battery pack supplies up to 8.5 hours of power. A 2MP web cam documents events as well as puts users into the middle of any meeting, no matter where it is held. Security is always a concern, whether in the office or out. The DURABOOK S15AB comes packed with an advanced security package that includes the Trusted Platform Management (TPM) 2.0 module to protect against unauthorized software modification and data theft, Kensington lock hole, administrator and boot password protection, and is Computrace ready.

No Comparison

The DURABOOK S15AB makes an ideal replacement for similar, though not as advanced, notebooks that may have hit the end of life (EOL) stage. S15AB’s 5th gen CPU is two generations newer than many competitors’ devices and its graphics package is likewise several generations newer. Additionally, the DURABOOK unit’s 1TB HDD and SSD storage capability is twice as much as the other units.

In comparing it to one previously popular competitor, the DURABOOK device is roughly 20% better in system performance, uses over 40% less power, and provides over 2.5 times better performance per watt used. Furthermore, the DURABOOK S15AB’s Wi-Fi speed is nearly three times faster in comparison, and the unit’s advanced security features make it better suited for military, federal agents, and public safety workers. At 8.5 hours, its battery lasts over twice as long.
