Dell's new ruggedized laptop, the Latitude E6400 XFR, manages to be slimmer—yet manlier—than its first foray into military-grade notebooks, with better ballistic armor, higher drop specs and dust/moisture shielding in 8.5lbs.

To help out all the military, first responders, oil & gas workers and like to get their computing done, the E6400 uses a Ballistic Armor Protection System that has twice the impact strength of magnesium alloy, the ability to stand drops of up to four feet, and corrosion protection.

Besides all that toughness, you get Intel Core 2 Duo processors, a QuadCool thermal management system, 4GB DDR SDRAM and either a shock mounted 80GB drive or a 64GB SSD drive. While most of us would never need something this tough, those who do need an Ahnold for their computing needs can get one starting at $4299. [Dell]

As someone who HAS used these types of lappies (I own TWO Toughbooks) over in the Sandbox, their toughness is worth GOLD. Some guys came over with their Apples, and hid them in 3-layer protective device and only took them out on clear, cool nights to avoid DUST. Which is like Dracula avoiding sunlight.

Even the toughbooks screens would go nasty after a while- and those that had touch-screen Toughbooks found that their screens scratched rather quickly-imagine RUBBING that dust into your screen.

Cool lappies? Not so much. Effective? Damn straight. Good for gaming? NOT.AT.ALL.
