INTELLIGENT Systems has been appointed a distributor for the Notino R5400 ruggedised notebook by Hygrade.
The Notino R5400 is encased in a compact, silver-and-grey 'briefcase-style' chassis with a soft handle at the back for ease of carrying.
The outer case is constructed from magnesium alloy for protection from the rigours of the road, to the extent that it has been successfully tested to military specifications (MIL-STD-810E) for both impact and vibration.
A leakproof keyboard adds further protection against the elements and coffee.
The Notino R5400 is one of the first notebooks to feature the USB 2.0 interface, providing plug-and-play connectivity to a growing range of high-speed peripherals as well as existing USB devices.
A Type II PC card socket and an S-Video TV output are also provided, the latter allowing the R5400 to function as a home DVD player.
The Notino R5400 has a 14.1-inch screen, either a DVD/CD-RW combo or a DVD-ROM drive, and a free Mini-PCI slot for optional IEEE802.11b wireless network or Bluetooth connection. A modem and LAN controller are also included as standard.
