What Makes a Laptop Rugged
Most rugged laptops offer most of the following features:
- Shock-Mounted Hard Drive – Internal hard drives are mounted in shock-absorbing compounds, which protect the drive from the impact of a fall or jolt.
- Spill and Dust Resistance – Sealants prevent liquid and dust from getting through the cracks in the keyboard and touchpad.
- Metal Alloy Casing – Heavy-duty casing, which provides extra protection against bumps, jolts, and falls.
- Sealed Ports and Slots – Unique sealing to protect vulnerable areas where liquid and dust could easily enter, such as PC card slots.
- Tempered Glass Displays – Stronger display to prevent cracking or splintering.
- Outdoor-Readable Displays – Screens designed to be read indoors or out.
- No Fan – Unique case construction allows it to work without a fan or vents which can expose internal components to dust and dirt.
- Rigorous Testing – Test equipment against drops, shock, moisture, dust, exposure to extreme temperatures, and more.
