Durabook’s Next-Generation S15 Semi-Rugged Laptop with 12th Gen Intel® CPU Packs Performance into the Thinnest, Lightest, 15.6” Semi-Rugged Laptop in its Class

The powerful CPU performance and broad functionality make the S15 a perfect partner for mobile professionals running sophisticated applications in challenging conditions.

Durabook, an innovator in purpose-built, rugged computing solutions, today announced the launch of the next-generation S15 Semi-Rugged Laptop equipped with the latest Intel® 12th Gen Alder Lake platform. The combination of this powerful CPU, coupled with a comprehensive set of connectivity options, security support, and its capability for further expandability makes this semi-rugged laptop with its large screen the perfect support for professional field services personnel running ever more sophisticated applications in challenging conditions.

The laptop’s 15.6” Full HD display may be the first thing to turn the head of a field service professional, but the CPU performance of the S15 Semi-Rugged Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 and i5 processors that are up to 206% faster than previously is an eye-opener. Looking past the handsome rugged exterior, at the Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics package, ultra-reliable connectivity, and the ability to operate as a workstation configured with up to three storage drives, this is the ideal rugged laptop for field services workers.

The S15 Semi-Rugged Laptop is a good companion device for field services personnel from the utilities, automotive, construction, and logistics industries, as well as public safety, and governmental agencies and organizations where work is conducted in precarious conditions.

“New and emerging network and IT technologies are throwing the doors open for field personnel to perform much more sophisticated, meaningful, and actionable functions at even the most remote sites,” said Sasha Wang, president, Durabook Americas. “Durabook undertook this powerful set of upgrades to its S15 Semi-Rugged Laptop to empower field professionals with high performance and strong functionality that its ruggedness belies.”
