Military Contractor Case Study Shows Value of Durabook Semi-Rugged Devices in Extreme Environments


Durabook Easily withstands Afghanistan and Middle East Deployments


Fremont, CA – November 06, 2018 – Durabook Americas, Inc., the North American subsidiary of Twinhead International Corporation, today announced the release of a new case study focused on the use of a semi-rugged Durabook computer by a military contractor. The contractor needed to find a laptop that would be able to withstand the extreme environmental conditions he was scheduled to face in Afghanistan and the Middle East, including sand and snowstorms, severe temperatures, and heavy rain. After careful reviews of available rugged devices, a Durabook semi-rugged laptop was selected for its offer value and ability to work reliably in demanding conditions.


The semi-rugged DURABOOK withstood drops, heavy vibration, extreme weather, and other environmental challenges, delivering a reliable platform to conduct business, regardless of the challenge.


“I definitely would recommend the Durabook to others. I know first-hand the device can take the bumps and bruises, dirt and dust, and especially the rain and still perform like new,” said Clarence Fong, military contractor. “My device has been dropped numerous times, tossed around from desk to floor, seat to floorboard, and still works fine. It’s a very reliable machine, I would not hesitate to invest in Durabook again.”
