Press release, January 17; Ricky Morris, DIGITIMES Asia 0

Dell has announced the Latitude ATG D620 (All-Terrain Grade), its first semi-rugged notebook computer for customers who work in tough environments.

The Latitude ATG meets military standards for vibration, humidity and altitude and is designed to protect against accidental bumps, moisture, and other elements that customers encounter working in the field, says the company. The system features a shock-mounted hard drive, spill-resistant keyboard, port covers and high durability paint and is designed to withstand challenging conditions commonly associated with military environments, construction sites and first responders, such as police and emergency organizations.

The Latitude ATG features support for Intel Core 2 Duo processors, a 14.1-inch display, and supports Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system.

The Latitude ATG is available in the US now and will be available in other Dell regions in the next couple weeks, adds the company.
