Share Article

A leader in computing solutions for businesses, General Technics has announced the availability of the Rhinobook, a shock-, drop- and spill-resistant, ruggedized notebook computer on its website.

General Technics, a leading provider of industrial-grade computers and hardware, recently unveiled the latest Rhinobook, a powerful notebook computer designed to withstand drops from up to four feet high. It features a magnesium alloy case many times stronger than the ABS plastic of most competing products. Shock resistant to MIL-STD-810G while not operating and ASTM 4169 while operating, the unit will also continue running if covered in water for up to five seconds. The keyboard, buttons, and indicators are also completely spill proof.

The Rhinobook is built with a sealed membrane so that critical components are not exposed to liquids or dust. Its LCD screen and hard disk drive are protected by an anti-shock mounting design. Another innovative feature is a flexible drive cable design, which absorbs any shock to the unit from a drop. Together, the innovative design aspects of the Rhinobook not only prevent damage to the machine, but prevent data loss in some of the most rigorous of circumstances.

In addition to being tough and durable, this notebook computer is also packed with respectable features. It is powered by an Intel HM86 chipset and Intel® Core™ I7, Intel Core I5, or Intel Pentium 3550M processor, while supporting any 2.5 inch SATA HDD or SSD. A Super Multi Optical Drive includes a bezel lock, preventing the tray from popping out in case the unit is dropped. The machine also supports up to 16GB of memory via two DDR-3L SODIMM sockets. Rhinobook’s usability is also enhanced by an i core CPU, Intel HD Graphic 4XXX processor, high-definition audio, and 15.6 inch HD TFT LCD screen.

Support for wireless communications includes a 10/100/Gigabit Ethernet port, a PCI Express mini card slot for a WLAN module, and a WWAN antenna and SIM card slot. Customers can also opt for a 3G or 4G LTE module. The notebook computer can therefore support a wide number of wireless applications for today’s high-demand communications needs.

The machine is also a powerhouse when it comes to I/O. It features a hidden touchpad – PS/2 mouse interface, expresscard 34/54 slot, SDXC card reader, and smart card reader. In addition to two USB 3.0 connectors, the unit has a USB 2.0 connector, phone jack, RJ-45 jack, 19-pin HDMI port, mic, and DC-in jack plus a nine-pin D-sub serial port. Even with all these features and a strong design, the notebook measures just 14.6 inches wide, 10.9 inches deep, and 1.48 to 1.57 inches high, coming in at just over seven pounds with a 9-cell 7800 mAh Li-Ion battery.

The Energy Star compliant, RoHS and REACH compliant Rhinobook is compatible with Windows® 7 and 8.1. With the latest Microsoft operating systems supported, it also has a secure design – users have administrator password, boot password, and a Kensington lock to guarantee their computer and data are safe at all times.
