      Funny that dells calls it rugged since Toughbook has been calling their laptop that for many years. I believe I first saw it call rugged over 12 years ago. By the way their 14" toughbook 54 lite is only 1500

                                The company I work for uses them for our field technicians working on the power grid. The ruggedness comes in real handy when the thing accidentally gets run over...

                                        Some years ago I decided it would be cool to go down this route, I had a telephone I could do sat calls with and literally hit it 50m with a bat and it still hold up, the laptop was so heavy I never brought it anywhere. It seems like a cool idea until you actually have to use this. Its heavy, its slow and its expensive.
