OVERVIEW Model 230 is the latest laptop computer that meets and exceeds the standards set by the military (810F, 461E) and industry (IP54), but is priced less than many of the competitors lightweight portable computers. With a 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo LV processor with Centrino™ Mobile Technology, the 230 features a versatile Bay 1 and removable HDD bay design. The 230’s Bay 1 can accommodate an optical drive, or a second battery. The removable HDD bay allow users to easily remove the HDD, giving users a wide array of advantages such as, allowing multiple users to share laptop but not the HDD, safeguarding/security by removal of the HDD, and general reliability of easily removing the HDD and putting it into another laptop regardless of the original laptop’s state.

The IP54 design means that the 230 is designed to survive the extreme use and needs of today’s “on-the-go” road warriors in field service, utilities, construction, telecommunications, military, police, fire and emergency services (EMS), data collection in science, oil and gas exploration where wind-blown, heavy rain, three–foot drops off the back of a truck, and temperatures from –4 to +130º F may be encountered.

Going beyond rugged, the 2300 is a powerful notebook computer. It features a large, bright 14.1”/15.0" TFT XGA LCD screen with 128MB VGA RAM that provides vibrant images whether indoors or outdoors. For direct sunlight applications, an optional outdoor viewable display and A/R reflective coating is available. A touch screen option is also available to the on-the-go/in-vehicle users. Behind the display is the latest Intel Core Duo LV processor with Centrino™ Mobile Technology for true speed and wireless portability. The 1.6GHz processor is enhanced with up to 2 GB of DDRII RAM, a 533/677 MHz FSB, a selection of quick-swap hard disk drives (80, 1000, or 160 GB) and optical drives (DVD, CD-ROM, and COMBO DVD/Floppy or CD/Floppy).

The main battery powers the 230 for up to 4 hours of full-out, pedal to metal use. The optional second battery adds two more hours, but the optional vehicle mount lets the unit recharge and function continuously.

The affordable 230 also offers customers field flexibility in the configuration. The swappable drives will allow police, fire officials, and utility workers to leave the computer in the vehicle but remove the drive at the end of the shift to finish their reports at their desks or checking the disk into evidence
