Well I found a good price within the budget on a CF-73 .... It's a semi-rugged, has the tough alloy chassis and lid, shock isolated hdd, and spill dust resistant keyboard.. The full ruggized ones are a bit much even used... It has a Pent M Centrino 1.7, 784mb ram, 40 gb hdd and a dvd-rw/cdrw drive .... Cost about 2 KP's and a pgp Those sales worked out good...

NOW to see how long it takes for it to come over the border from Canada

The toughbooks are pretty good in terms of being ruggedized.
Dell makes a ruggedized model and so do plenty of other companies.
You *may* need to ask for one specifically but so long as the model in question isn't under exclusive gov't contract they can sell you one.


Just be aware that though the laptop itself can take a few falls and bumps, the screen itself is still quite vulnerable.


My boss was demonstrating one of the new ruggedized computers that they were going to be installing on a few Navy vessels. He drops it and beats it around a bit, no big deal. Then he turns it on and, I suppose as a further demonstration, punches the screen right in the center. Needless to say, the display shatters into some pretty bright, cool-looking fragments.

Moral of the story is don't punch the screen.
