General Dynamics Itronix Corporation GoBook® III
  GoBookiii Notebook
Launched in September 2004, the GoBook® III was the first fully rugged notebook to implement the then state-of the art Intel Pentium M 1.8 GHz processor. Proof of General Dynamics Itronix's industry-leading legacy in the development of high performance integrated wireless rugged computing products and services that improve the productivity of mobile workers, worldwide, the GoBook III's highlights are as follows: (see also the 'next generation 'GoBook XR-1, launched in August 2006):
  • Meets and exceeds the rigid military standard (MIL-STD 810F)
  • Operating System: Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional SP2
  • Features one of Intel's most high performance processors—the Intel® Pentium® M processor 745 (2MB cache, 1.8 Ghz, 400 Mhz front side bus)
  • Complies with Ingress Protection rating of IP54 for dust and rain intrusion sealing
  • Its 12.1" Outdoor-Viewable Transmissive XGA display comes with built-in Touchscreen capability (30% brighter than other outdoor viewable standard displays).

  The GoBook III was developed with multiple input options, a dedicated graphics engine with dedicated 64K memory, and a "no tools needed" removable shock-mounted hard drive. Rain or shine, day or night, the GoBook III is packed with features that make field computing as simple as possible. A NiteVue® glow-in-the-dark keyboard and TFT XGA Outdoor transmissive display overcome the problems of nighttime data entry and full-sun viewing.

Meeting military specifications for ruggedization, the GoBook III can perform in conditions that would stop an ordinary notebook computer in its tracks. Operating at -10°F to 140°F and still operate in downpouring rain of 4 inches per hour, the GoBook III will survive some pretty rigorous conditions.

With GD-Itronix's exclusive CRMA® (Common Radio Module Architecture) wireless integration design, your GoBook III investment is secure. As radio technologies evolve, CRMA enables you to upgrade radios on your existing GoBook III® extending life and useful value.

The GoBook III is supported by GD-Itronix's award-winning icare Implementation Services, where you will receive support ranging from project justification and planning to first line help desk support for your mobile workers.

The GoBook III is more than the world's most advanced wireless rugged mobile computer. It is proof of GD-Itronix's industry-leading legacy in the development, implementation and support of computing products and services that improve the productivity of mobile workers, worldwide.
