General Dynamic GD2000 rugged ultra-mobile notebook can survive harsh conditions

General Dynamics has been offering the Itronix line of rugged and ultra-mobile notebooks for a long time.

The new GD2000 makes use of an Intel Celeron M ULV722 processor running at 1.2GHz and sporting an 800MHz FSB. The machine has 2GB of DDR3 RAM plugged into a MicroDIMM slot. The video card can use up to 256MB of that RAM.

Intel Ultrabook debuts: sub-$1k Sandy/Ivy Bridge ultraportables

Intel isn't willing to let ARM grab all the ultraportable mindshare, and the chip behemoth has obviously decided that some judicious rebranding is what's needed.
