The result is excellent performance for a wide range of data- and/or graphics-intensive usage scenarios while at the same time being economical in power consumption. Both devices feature excellent expansion options: The NVMe main memory is available in various configurations up to 1 TB, a hard drive slot enables the expansion by another 5 TB of storage capacity, and flexible data transfer is possible via the SDXC card slot.
The bright (700 nits) 14 or 15.6 inch Full-HD displays ensure perfect display legibility at night and in bright sunlight. Optionally, the models are also available with glove-operated touchscreen. Rockbook X540 and Rockbook X550 G2 also offer the latest physical security and data protection features. A discrete TPM 2.0 module, optional self-encrypting hard drives, and integrated Device Protection Technology with Boot Guard all contribute to system protection. A fingerprint sensor already included in the standard scope of delivery supports secure logins via Windows Hello, while the integrated Kensington Lock slot protects the workstation against theft.
The fully rugged laptops are light and compact for their class, weighing just 2.85 and 3.3 kg, respectively. Thanks to the integrated carrying handles, the devices are very comfortable even during transport. For long workdays, the Rockbook X540 and X550 G2 come with two batteries: a 46.6 Wh hot-swap battery as well as an additional fixed 14.8 Wh battery. The device remains fully functional during battery replacement. The compact form factor and two hot-swappable batteries make both models ideal for extended use in the field.
