The most hardened versions of the Panasonic Toughbooks have been updated with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and brighter touchscreens. Since most of these laptops will be used in broad daylight, that extra screen brightness will certainly be welcome.

All this durability comes at a price, though: depending on configuration, you'll spend around $4000 for the 10.4" screen Toughbook-19, and around $4500 for a fully-equipped Toughbook-30 (pictured above) with its 13.3" screen. Still, it's probably worth it if you're taking your laptop along when you go bungee jumping.
