ChannelCincinati review Twinhead Durabook R14D and put the Durabook to rug use and concluded that “overall, I’d say the Durabook is a worthy competitor to most of the Toughbook line. This really isn’t designed to be compared to the heavily-armored models that you see soldiers and police using (Panasonic Toughbook CF-27, 28, 29, the Itronix GoBook or the HP nr3610). This computer is aimed at the people who would be hardest on a laptop — business road warriors, outdoor users and the people with 14-month-old children.”

If you’re one of those people (or you think you might become one), give the Durabook a look.
