      "you can't do that on a MacBook". To be fair, there isn't much you can do on a MacBook!

      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 laptop can survive in the sands.
            It can survive inside dirt.
            It can survive in lava.
            It can survive from hunters and poachers.
            It can survive underwater.
            It can survive from sharks.
            This laptop is definitely not a beast.
            But this laptop is a WILD SHOW.

                              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.
