SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – The new GD6000 vehicle-rugged notebook, by General Dynamics Itronix, is now available for field technicians, law enforcement personnel and others whose offices are in trucks, patrol cars, utility vans or other vehicles. Designed to work on the road, GD6000 notebooks combine high-performance computing with secure, wireless-network connectivity at a price that balances durability and affordability.

Based on the award-winning General Dynamics Itronix GoBook® VR-2, new GD6000 notebooks will soon be in the hands of field-service technicians working for CPS Energy in San Antonio, Texas.

“We needed a durable notebook for our field-service technicians that could withstand the bumpy conditions of a truck environment as well as all types of Texas weather and we opted to go with the GD6000,” said James Trevino, manager of Technical Services and Electrical Engineering for CPS Energy based in San Antonio, Texas. “It offered excellent display ‘viewability’ in direct sunlight and exceeded our requirements for computing performance so we can manage work orders in the field.”

John Schneider, business unit director for General Dynamics Itronix, said, “The GD6000 is our next generation of rugged notebook, designed especially for a mobile workforce. It meets their very specific requirements for durability and superior performance, while supporting increasingly complex applications.”
