Dell's Latitude ATG D620 Ruggedized Notebook

Dell has introduced the Latitude ATG D620, its first semi-rugged notebook computer for customers who work in tough environments. The Latitude ATG meets military standards for vibration, humidity and altitude and is designed to protect against accidental bumps, moisture, and other elements that customers encounter working in the field. The new system features a shock-mounted hard drive, spill-resistant keyboard, port covers and high durability paint and is designed to withstand challenging conditions commonly associated with military environments, construction sites and first responders, such as police and emergency organizations.

The Latitude ATG includes a 14.1-inch display with ambient light sensor, glass overlay and anti-reflective coating. The LCD display is 1? times brighter than most mainstream corporate notebooks for better viewing in sunlight. Customers working in the military, emergency preparedness, construction and even the golf industry say seeing the display in full daylight is an important factor in their notebook computing experience.

The Latitude ATG 620 features:
- 500 NIT LCD with non-reflective coating;
- 14.1-inch WXGA screen (1,280x800 resolution);
- Supports up to 4GB DDR2 SDRAM;

The Latitude ATG provides hard drive image compatibility with the Latitude D620. It is also compatible with all D-family wireless and security products as well as accessories like docks, port replicators, and power adapters. Latitude ATG is designed with the environment in mind including a lead-free motherboard and chassis. It is RoHS compliant and designed to be energy efficient in multiple customer environments.
