      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...

              This laptop is not meant to be toy for basement kids. Its a tool. And very great one. That is what you woman like kids dont understand.

                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.

If our keyboards and mice were as inaccurate as capacitive touch screens, we wouldn't put up with it. Yet for some reason we keep using this capacitive garbage.
