The M230 is a new generation notebook computer. The rugged, all metal portable computer is designed to survive harsh handling in extreme environmental conditions. The M230 is tested to MIL-STD-810F for ruggedisation. The system is completely sealed from water, dust and dirt intrusion to IP54 and can withstand heavy vibration and shock loads from every day use in rough in-vehicle transportation and handling.
The M230 configuration includes a powerful Intel Mobile Pentium® M processor, 1.4GHz processor, 256MBs of memory, PCMCIA/Cardbus, 3D audio, and a fully sealed rubber keyboard with an integrated pointing device. Mass storage is provided by a standard removable EIDE hard drive. The hard drive is a small form-factor, 2.5-inch ruggedised unit mounted in a shock absorbing sealed cartridge that slides into the side of the M230. A peripheral bay houses either the removable floppy drive or optional CD-ROM drive
