5th Jun 2019
If you were to ask a bunch of random people on the street about who they think has the toughest jobs out there, you’d probably hear a lot of people talking about members of the military and first responders. Everyone who thinks about it would realize that people in the military and first responders like paramedics, fire fighters, and police officers, all deal with some of the most difficult job conditions out there.
If you are a first responder, are serving in the military, or you have a job where conditions aren’t always the best, you need a rugged laptop that can handle the stress of your work.

Built to Handle Rough Rides
Many modern laptops now feature solid-state drives as standard, but a surprisingly large number still ship with traditional hard disc drives. While hard disk drives have long been the standard, they are not nearly as reliable, stable, or fast as solid-state drives.
Speed, stability, and reliability are paramount when your work can be a matter of life and death. Solid-state drives are not at risk of mechanical failure, which means that you won’t have to worry about losing everything on your computer when you need it most. Whether you’re in the military, a first responder, or your job is a little less high-stakes, a laptop that won’t quit when things get bumpiest is a good idea.
Protection From the Environment
Most laptops were designed to be used by people at home or in an office. Manufacturers can reasonably make certain assumptions about these environments (temperature, humidity levels, etc.) that allow them to pick components that will hold up under these relatively stable conditions. As the vast majority of computers are used in offices and homes, most manufacturers never bother to create cases that are water-, dust-, smoke-, or sand-resistant, or include parts that withstand shocks, drops, and extreme temperatures.
First responders and military service members use tough laptops because they are pieces of highly specialized equipment that were designed with these extreme conditions in mind. Don’t let heat, humidity, or normal wear-and-tear destroy your regular laptop when you can find an affordable rugged notebook that features the processing power and programs that you need.
