What makes a Rugged Laptop:
Most rugged laptops are made with a magnesium housing - 20 times stronger than ABS plastic and rated to take a drop from 3ft. while Panasonic Toughbook fully rugged line can handle a drop from 6ft. All major components are shock mounted like the Hard Disc Drive, LCD, Motherboard, RAM and other critical parts within the laptop. USB, RS232, VGA, FireWire, Power and other ports are all protected behind doors or tight fitting rubber gaskets - allowing these ports to withstand the harsh elements. LCDs range from small (5.6") to large (15.4"). Sunlight Readable LCDs are the most popular feature to have while using your machine in outdoor conditions. While commercial plastic laptop screens would need to be shaded, adding a Sunlight Readable LCD allows for the sun to be directly on the LCD while still being able to view everything on the Display/LCD.
What to do with a Rugged Laptop:
Rugged laptops or Panasonic Toughbooks, also referred to as mobile computers, are used in a variety of settings such as mounted in vehicles, carried by our armed forces, executives on the go and almost all individuals that work in a rough and tough environments. The rugged laptop is most importantly there to withstand the rigors of everyday use no matter the situation - rain, sand, vibration, shock, drop, high to low temperatures and the highest altitudes to the lowest. There are many applications for a rugged mobile computer. Rugged notebooks are made durable to withstand the punishment that go along with the daily use of these machines.
Who uses a Panasonic Toughbook:
If you work in the field or if you drive a vehicle, on and off the construction site, in and out of war zones or you just don't think plastic is strong enough for your lifestyle. A magnesium housed rugged notebook will take the beatings you give it or the accidental drops and the vibrations from the road. Service men and women and individuals working in the field know what it's like to use a commercial plastic laptop outdoors. You can't see the screen, your battery runs for a couple hours and if you drop it - you're done for. A rugged notebook will fix all those problems with Sunlight Readable LCDs, 3ft. drop resistant to MIL-STD 810F certification and your battery last upwards of 12-15 hours on select ruggedized laptops. Whether you work in the dirt or work in the cleanest environments a rugged notebook would be perfect for you.

With an ultra strong magnesium alloy case, the MIL-STD 810G certified Panasonic Toughbook CF30 is vibration, drop and shock resistant and sports a 32 mm thick, foam-packed HDD casing, to withstand drops from a height of 6 feet. The novel thing is that the solid metal handle incorporated into the chassis makes it nearly impossible to drop this machine, but accidents do happen. The optional 1,000 NIT touchscreen, readable under direct sunlight, is an option particularly meant for the law enforcement officials, armed forces, first responders, field service techs and other industry workers who have to work outside with a rugged notebook. With the 1,000 NIT bright touchscreen, you can easily use custom touchscreen enabled applications in vehicle-mounted environments or when walking around. The CF30's extremely durable battery lasts up to 6-8 hours.
The sealed keyboard and ports and shock mounted screen and HDD add the essential ruggedness.
