Comdex Spring: iTronix 6250 Pro notebook - it's tough

How would you like a notebook that could be run over by a tank? A luminescent keyboard so you could compute in the dark?

How would you like a notebook that could be run over by a tank? A luminescent keyboard so you could compute in the dark? How about if it also had a touch screen and wireless CDPD (Cellular Digital Packet Data) connectivity as well? Even better, what if you could spill an entire can of coke on it, and it wouldn't miss a click!

It's also an analogue phone! What is it? The new iTronix 6250 Pro "ruggedised" notebook. ITronix has been in the rugged notebook market for a while. It offers another notebook and a Windows CE-based device that claim to be just as tough. This almost indestructible (at least when closed) system doesn't come cheap -- it starts at $4,500 (£2,750) -- and it's not as powerful as the latest comparible notebooks.

It runs on a Cyrix 266 MediaGX processor, can include up to 128Mb of RAM, and has a 3.2Gb hard drive. You can add in a CDPD data modem and analogue cellular phone option for another $1,500 (£915).
