DURABOOK Benefits

Whether you are on the road, at home or in the office, DURABOOK offers you peace of mind. The reliable DURABOOK let's you concentrate on your work and gives you added protection against physical or functional damage during normal everyday use.

What is DURABOOK?

Mobile devices have become a part of daily life. Whether at home, in the office, or on the road, we rely on notebook computers, cell phones, and other portable devices to enhance our lives.

With this newfound flexibility, there are more risks that we face. When it comes to portable devices, accidental damage is the #1 cause for product failure. According to an independent study, 18% of notebook computers are physically damaged and returned for repair in the first year of ownership. Of these damaged notebook computers, over 60% are damaged from accidental drops and over 30% are damaged from liquid spills.

This is why Twinhead developed the DURABOOK line of notebook computers. DURABOOK models feature a rugged design that provides added protection to the vital components - hard disk drive, LCD display, motherboard, optical drive, and battery - of your notebook computer from normal everyday mishaps.

In addition to its rugged features, DURABOOK models are built with high performance components and a slim and lightweight design that allows for true functionality and mobility. With over eighteen years of experience in manufacturing notebook computers, Twinhead once again provides a product that is "Two Steps Ahead" of its competition.
