Dell recently released a new rugged laptop that boasts of the utmost in durability. The XFR D630 is a good compliment to Dell’s other rugged laptop, the Latitude ATG D620. The difference between the two is regarding standards. The Latitude is a semi rugged laptop that passes half of the MIL-STD 810F specs — a standard that was formulated by the Department of Defense for products that are meant to be operated in harsh environmental factors. The XFR D630, on the other hand, passes all of the requirements.
Features-wise, the XFR D630 is similar to the Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 — it has a thick diecast magnesium alloy chassis, a sealed keyboard, as well as port covers. It also has a solid state drive that comes in 32 and 64 gigabyte capacities. the display is a 14-inch widescreen with a brightness rating of 500 nits. It also has touchscreen capabilities. What’s more, the XFR D630 is highly configurable with a big selection of processors, RAM and graphics.
