I have seen Panasonic Toughbook models that folks have played video games
underwater in the bathtub, yet when they drop them off a boat dock they
fail. State Troopers rarely take their models out of the squad anymore after
having to replace units that fall off their squads. I have also seen the
titanium-magnesium alloy laptop cases crushed by the combination of a
motorized tilt/recline titanium wheelchair and improper placement! I agree
with the articles statement that you can replace a normal laptop several
times over for the cost of the "ruggedized" laptops. A little common sense
goes a long ways.......
