The new GD8000 notebook computer by General Dynamics Itronix is now available for military personnel, field service workers, and first responders who require high-performance computing while working in extreme temperatures, humidity, dust and rain-soaked environments.

"Our customers told us that to perform their mission-critical duties, they needed a notebook that was more rugged, had longer battery run-time and was equipped with a display they could see in all lighting conditions. We responded by producing the GD8000, a unit with the industry's best drop protection, rain resistance, battery run-time, and display viewability," said John Schneider, business unit director for General Dynamics Itronix.

Engineered to operate in extreme conditions, the GD8000 kept working after multiple 42-inch drops onto a hard surface, operated in the rain for more than four hours, and successfully booted-up in freezing and scorching temperatures. Powered by the Intel low-voltage Core2Duo processing architecture, the GD8000 is housed in a user-friendly, ergonomic casing with a 13.3-inch DynaVue touchscreen display. The GD8000 delivers uncompromising performance from command centers, to helicopters, to tactical vehicles and everywhere in between.
