General Dynamic GD2000 is Tough Enough to Surf the Web While Skydiving

by Shane McGlaun

My notebook often just refuses to work when I am sitting at my desk just to piss me off. It certainly would not work if I took it outside in the Texas heat or did something even more daring like let my kids use it. If you are the sort that has to be web-connected all the time, like even when you are skydiving, the GD2000 could be the ultraportable for you.

This tiny little notebook is sort of like a cross between a netbook and a rugged smartphone. It’s quite small and has a roughly smartphone sized screen at 5.6-inches that can be read in the sunlight. It has a VGA port and a dock that will let it offer higher resolution in the office or at home. It has a Celeron M processor at 1.2GHz and 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

The rig stores to either a 64GB SSD or a 128GB SSD and it has a small 77-key QWERTY keyboard for typing that is backlit. The battery is good for up to six hours of use and is hot swappable. The coolest part is that it meets military specs for water and dust protection and will survive drops and more. It’s even waterproof.

Despite all that, you probably shouldn’t use it to surf the web while skydiving.
