Dell announces new military-grade rugged notebook

Dell has gone rugged. So super rugged. Military-grade rugged with the Latitude XFR D630. The D630 starts at just under $4,000 and weighs nearly nine pounds (just shy of a regular consumer laptop from Dell - hay-oh!) Screen ( at 500 nits) and shockproof mounted components.

It meets military standards (MIL-STD 810F) for extreme heat and cold, humidity and altitude and, according to Dell, has "23 percent better system performance than the Panasonic CF-30" and "five times more data durability than leading competitors with solid state drives."
