GPS Integrated laptop from Itronix gets government recognition


The VR1 from Itronix, a General Dynamics company, recently was awarded “Best of FOSE” award from Government Computer News (who knew?). This semi-rugged laptop includes integrated support for 4 RF Modems (Bluetooth, 802.11 a/b/g, GPS, and Wireless WAN and they claim it will resist any 30″ fall or less. The specs are pretty impressive like its magnesium alloy case with shock-mounted hard disk drive & display and fingerprint scanner.

The basic configuration is $3000 and if you want to add that 80 Gb heated hard disk and the integrated GPS, and upgrade the memory to 2Gb it will cost you $4300. I know I’m not getting one but the military obviously can afford this. Here are some more highlights:
