      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

                  We use these in the Marine Corps and bbbboooyyyy are they soooooo bad. I can't even use it for what we need it for, which is simple point to point transmissions.
