The Durabook R13C, an upgraded version of model R13S, passes Military Standard 810G certification for drop, shock, and spill protection, plus explosive atmosphere, salt, fog, and freeze/thaw standards. It is perfectly suited for a variety of applications, including law enforcement, military, homeland security, field service, mining, and mobile workers in any type of outdoor environment.
Adding to its fully rugged character are its IP65 rating, which ensures that enclosed portions of the unit are completely protected against any contact with dust and water. Its magnesium alloy case is 20 times stronger than ABS plastic. It is tested to the tough Military Standard 810G while a version with Military Standard 461E/F is optional.

For workers making first-time visits or trips to unfamiliar locations, a built-in GPS receiver puts them in touch with their favorite GPS navigation software.
For ultimate in-the-field flexibility and functionality, a pivot hinge allows the R13C to quickly and easily transform into a tablet PC. A quick release mechanism allows the HDD to be removed in seconds, if the necessity is ever called for.
