Dell Latitude E6400 XFR: a laptop you can drop, shock and nearly blow up

Summary: Laptop security is a top-shelf issue for IT pros, and there's nothing worse than data corruption from drops, spills and tech complications thanks to an employee or the environment they're in. Enter Dell's Latitude E6400 XFR, the company's next-gen "fully rugged" platform, engineered to meet the needs of the most demanding customers: the military, first responders, field service technicians and those who require systems that meet MIL STD 810F specs: drop tests, sea fog, temperature extremes, thermal shock and explosive environments.

  • It's the Aldy's version of the Toughbook

    Wow, I wonder if it will hold up as well as the Panasonic version does.

    Key questions: How well does it perform in terms of actual computing work by a user, and what price will it be pitched at?

      Looking at $4k +, you can go to Dell's website and customize one yourself to see the specs available, not shipping before the end of April though...
