The Durabook D14E was the first ruggedized laptop I’ve seen on the market targeted for the business professional or construction worker who needs a rugged laptop to carry around on the job site. It is also perfect for those people that are clumsy like me with laptops or cell phones. The spill, drop and shock resistance of this laptop has to be seen to be believed. The other benefit of this laptop over others is the Terabyte of storage it comes with out of the box. The Durabook D14E is an improvement over the D14RM, which was the last generation, and it shows. The only negatives on this laptop are the use of a Core 2 Duo CPU instead of the Core i5 series found on most modern laptops and the use of DDR2 memory instead of DDR3 memory. I’m sure Gammatech will update the series in the future but for now the benefits of the Core i5 Mobile series including improved performance and Turbo Boost.
