Dell has announces laptop up to military standards

Dell today announced its answer to the Panasonic Toughbook. The Texas-based computer company has released details on its first semi-rugged notebook computer for customers who work in tough environments – the Latitude ATG D620 (the ATG stands for All-Terrain Grade). The Latitude ATG with Core 2 Duo is now available in the U.S. and will be available in other Dell regions in the next couple weeks. Pricing starts at $2499.

According to Dell, the Latitude ATG meets military standards for vibration, humidity and altitude and is designed to protect against accidental bumps, moisture, and other elements that customers encounter working in the field.

The new system features a shock-mounted hard drive, spill-resistant keyboard, port covers and high durability paint and is designed to withstand challenging conditions commonly associated with military environments, construction sites and first responders, such as police and emergency organizations.

For better viewing in sunlight the Latitude ATG includes a 14.1-inch display that is 1.5 times brighter than most mainstream corporate notebooks. The display also features an ambient light sensor, glass overlay and anti-reflective coating.

TaylorMade Golf has used the Latitude ATG to help custom-fit golfers with clubs using its exclusive motion analysis technology (MATT-i). With notebook computers, TaylorMade can analyze golf swings outdoors calculating the angle and speed they produce.

“It seemed as if Dell had TaylorMade specifically in mind when developing this product,” said Ted Jaskowiak, R&D IT account manager at TaylorMade Golf. “The screen’s brightness is exactly what we need to use in our outdoor facilities and the added rugged features will help us protect our equipment from everyday bumps and bruises.”

“The Latitude ATG is a prime example of Dell’s commitment to customer-driven innovation,” said Jeff Clarke, senior vice president Dell Product Group. “We have heard from customers loud and clear that a tougher, highly protective notebook with a screen that is easy to see outdoors is necessary in many lines of work. We’re glad that we could meet that customer request with a product distinguished by industry-leading features.”
