LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - American Reliance, Inc. (AMREL) releases new laptop models for its popular ROCKY line of rugged mobile computing platforms. Faster, more powerful, and more flexible than earlier models, the new RT9, RK9, and RF9 laptops are perfect for the data-heavy applications used by the military and public safety sectors.

"Every single upgrade in the new laptops was made in response to the critical needs of end users," explains Ron McMahan, AMREL's VP, Engineering Solutions. "Video streaming, biometric file transmission, mapping software, and other large footprint applications need greater shared system memory. So, AMREL has added options for up to 8GB memory as well as faster processors and a larger memory cache."

In addition, AMREL's legendary ruggedness has taken a step up with ratings of IP-55, MIL-STD 810G, and MIL-STD 461F. Reliable and quiet operation is also ensured by Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processors, which effectively cool via the chassis. The body of the widely deployed ROCKY RK9 has been upgraded to be stronger and lighter.

The new RT9, RK9, and RF9 laptops are all Flexpedient® capable. AMREL's patent-pending Flexpedient® Technology enables one computer to run multiple applications. Leveraging the traditional device bay for optical drives, it can be modified to include a client's application-specific modules. Simply swap modules out of our specially modified device bay, and within minutes you can run a completely different application. Field-expedient Flexpedient® solutions are widely deployed in theater, where their uses include communication, sensor management, and robotic control.

Having proved themselves in battlefields for over 20 years, AMREL's ROCKY computer platforms have earned a reputation for their reliability and sustainability. AMREL engineers have built the new laptops with the same toughness and extended End of Life as the previous models.

AMREL's new ROCKY laptops are available in three display sizes: 13.3", 15", and 17.1". To learn more about these new laptops, please visit http://computers.amrel.com/computers/notebook.
