Well the reviews are not that good...I just highlighted a few things
. I think it's another one of them laptops that...When I grow up I want to be a Toughbook
BUILD & DESIGN
The U12C is not nearly as chunky or as boxy looking as some of its fellow rugged tablet PCs, as it sports a sleeker and slimmer design than you may expect. The exterior is what GammaTech refers to as “stylish rugged” and is made of magnesium alloy, with other parts of the machine being polycarbonate and plastic. The exterior casing feels somewhat light and hollow
, almost as if the device is pretending to be something it’s not
. The silver finish on the outside makes it look as if this thing is protected by something tough and durable when really it’s cheap material
and makes for a machine not nearly as tough as its competitors.
The U12C was able to take mild abuse, like being dropped on the floor or kicked around (albeit somewhat carefully), but I wasn’t about to push it any further
. GammaTech claims the U12C is certified to pass certain MIL-STD-810G tests (which gauge the machine’s resistance to drops, liquid/spills, and vibration/shocks), but I’m not sure I would ever want to expose the machine to especially intense conditions.
The U12C is a far cry
from being the toughest rugged tablet PC out there
