SECURE Communications has recently released their latest product called the Ruffbook, a ruggedised portable computer.
Available from Metromatics Pty Ltd , the Ruffbook is designed to provide the mobile user with a system that can be configured to the equivalent of a desktop system by the addition of user supplied PCI Cards or additional peripherals within the chassis.

The system is based on a highly integrated, high performance, mobile embedded processor that is pluggable.

The system contains one removable and one fixed 2 1/2" Hard Disk Drive, CD/RW/FDD-A CD/RW and Floppy Disk drive, which are contained behind an environmentally sealed metal front door.
These standard COTs devices are operational over a limited temperature range.
