Dell today announced the Latitude ATG D620 (All-Terrain Grade), its first semi-rugged notebook computer for customers who work in tough environments. The Latitude ATG is now available in the U.S. and will be available in other Dell regions in the next couple weeks.
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.
Industry-Leading Display Brightness In response to direct customer feedback, the Latitude ATG includes a 14.1-inch display with ambient light sensor (ALS), 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.
TaylorMade Golf, an existing Dell customer, has chosen the Latitude ATG to help custom-fit golfers with clubs using its exclusive motion analysis technology (MATT-i). With notebook computers, TaylorMade can analyze golf swings outdoors calculating the angle and speed they produce. TaylorMade evaluated notebooks from several manufacturers and chose the Latitude ATG because of its bright screen and rugged design.
As a photographer with a Navy reserve unit in Iraq, F.T. Eyre used an older generation Dell Latitude notebook to organize thousands of digital photos. He says with extremely sandy and hot conditions, his notebook constantly tested the limits. The new Latitude ATG is designed to withstand the extreme conditions Eyre and other military personnel face on a daily basis.
