A notebook as tough as you are
In a perfect world, we'd all use our notebooks in dry, computer-friendly environments. We'd protect our mobile PCs from spills and drops.
But in a real world populated by on-the-go travelers, careless kids, harried servers, rushed security screeners and careless baggage handlers, we don't always have the final say. And – while it's fine to say notebooks must operate under clean, dry, hazard-free conditions – our notebooks need to be rugged enough to get the job done at rough-and-tumble job sites, on active factory floors and in less-than-safe laboratories as well as in airport lounges, on beaches and in restaurants or coffee shops.
In this real world, accidental damage is the number one cause of product failure. According to an independent study, 18 percent of notebook computers are physically damaged and returned for repair in the first year of ownership. Of these damaged notebook computers, over 60% are damaged from accidental drops and over 30% are damaged from liquid spills.
That's why Twinhead developed the DURABOOK line of notebook computers. DURABOOK models feature a rugged design that delivers added protection from normal everyday mishaps for your notebook computer's vital components – the hard disk drive, LCD display, motherboard, optical drive and battery.

DURABOOK is tough enough to meet simulated Military 810F rugged specifications, built for road warriors, mobile professionals, gamers, and everyone on the go who needs to run memory intensive applications and high speed wireless technology. The Twinhead DURABOOK incorporates added protection against drop, vibration, and liquid spills while remaining competitively priced with plastic case commercial notebooks that lack structural protection. With pricing up to 50% less than fully rugged notebook systems, the DURABOOK models offer you the essential rugged features that are needed to lower the risk of damage from normal everyday use while still providing high performance capabilities at a competitive price.
All DURABOOK systems meet simulated US Military and European Committee rugged feature standards to ensure their durability. These standard test measurements include:
DROP TEST - Simulated MIL STD 810F, Method 516.4, Procedure IV, 26 drops of 36 inches (29 inches for all 15" DURABOOK systems) onto plywood over concrete with unit off and display closed.
VIBRATION TEST - Simulated MIL STD 810F, Method 514.4, Procedure I, Category 10, Fig 16&17/ASTM 4169, Truck Transport 11.5.2 Random test, Assurance Level II.
