      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

    Our hospital receives patients from private ambulance companies who use computers like this. They get knocked around a lot and they hold up. Also, while I was in the Service, some soldiers had these for obvious reasons.

                I don't care about the thickness, where I live would be useful against criminals, to brake some skulls. In fact I think this would be perfect for me, because I destroy laptops easily or when there are natural disasters & you need coordinate efforts.

                      YES, it cannot game. It cannot win you a fictitious battle. But it will help win a real battlefield.

                                      I worked in Oil and Gas for 6 years, these things have a place and it's not your office, it's in the field, in a compression plant or 500 meters underground in a mine, the types of guys who use also use the word F*&KI a lot and generally do not have time for shit that does not do its job, I know one guy personally who threw his $5000 toughbook (crap pos in my opinion) across the drilling rig floor cause he also thought it was a POS.

                                      EDIT: Why a com-port cause a lot of equipment needs that connection and your good old USB to Serial just does not always work.

Recently, I saw a similar test with the Marine version. The OG of manly laptops.
