GoBook MR-1

Ultra Rugged Mobile PC

When the demands of your work setting eliminate other computers due to size and space limitations or environmental extremes, the fully-rugged yet compact GoBook® MR-1 is ready to fill the void. The MR-1 is ideal for motorcycle applications.

Able to go anywhere, it is lightweight and fits in your hand but still furnishes the functionality of a full featured notebook with the rugged durability you expect from General Dynamics Itronix computers.

Your work environment may be extreme but then so are the rugged features of the GoBook® MR-1. From punishing 36" drops and extreme temperatures to humidity, vibration, dust and rain, it is designed to meet or exceed fully-rugged standards and Military Standard (MIL STD) 810F and IP54 specs.

So small and light you can carry it in one hand, the GoBook® MR-1 is also easy to use. With a full QWERTY backlit keyboard, touchpad, micro-joystick, mouse thumb buttons and direction pad, this 2.0 lb computer makes on-the-go computing painless.

In any and all lighting conditions, including direct sunlight, you can still see the screen because the GoBook® MR-1 features our award winning, innovative DynaVue® touchscreen display that dramatically increases outdoor viewability. Of course, it's easy to see inside too.

Don't let the small size fool you. The GoBook® MR-1 is still filled with features found in full-size computers, including a 1.2 GHz Intel® Core Solo™ U1400 Processor, 40GB hard drive with standard heater and 80 GB and SSD (Solid State Drive) options.

Keeping you connected for ultimate mobility and productivity, the GoBook® MR-1 offers multiple wireless options including WWAN, WLAN 802.11a/b/g, PAN, embedded GPS and Bluetooth.

Whether connected or not, you can keep working with the 3 and 6-hour battery life options enhanced by the proven General Dynamics Itronix Power Saver utility and an ultra-fast charging capability.

For your customized computing needs optional expansion "slice" modules provide additional functionality and a host of ports such as USB, PC Card, Ethernet, and more.

Your data is protected with multiple security features including a fingerprint reader, BIOS-level passwords, stealth mode, TPM 1.2 and an optional smart card.

Service and support are never an issue with a standard 3-year warranty. Plus enterprise customers can choose from a comprehensive suite of support levels including extra options like Mobile Help Desk.

You can work longer while using less energy because the ENERGY STAR® certified GoBook® MR-1 is designed with your productivity and the environment in mind. With sophisticated power management settings you can cut power consumption on both AC and battery, ultimately saving money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, our packaging is designed to reduce environmental impact.
