Spokane firm releases new super-tough, military-grade laptop

There’s a lot of talk about cheap netbooks and $100 laptops for students, but perhaps older kids really need something like the GD6000, a new military-grade laptop from Spokane Valley-based General Dynamics Itronix.

The ruggedized computer meets military standards for resisting dust, vibration, humidity and temperature extremes. It also has a spill-resistant keyboard, embedded tracing software and a shock-mounted hard-drive and display.

It’s designed for police, field technicians and people who need a tough computer to mount in their vehicles. Other features of the 6.2-pound brute include a 13.3-inch touch-screen display designed for improved viewing outdoors, dual task lights. GPS, an Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 processor, 120 gigabyte hard-drive and wireless via WiFi or cellular networks.

All at a starting price of $3,495. Pretty expensive, but it should last more than a semester or two.
