Notebooks for rugged use.

Bash 'em, spill you COFFEE on them, drop them, kick them, keyboard dirty? Wash it off with col dwater, no prob.

I have worked with I-Tronix products (the G3 is cool, it will stand up to a constant stream of water through a shower head!) for a while now.

Though designed for rugged applications, oil fields, fire and police vehicles, truckng company's etc., I can't believe how these notebooks arent a must have for IT departments. C-Net finally caught up and posted a review and pic on their XR-1, anyone here know of or ever used one? You can also visit the site for more great ways to normally kill a notebook,

Cnet's review:

If you haven't seen one, these rugged notebooks will **** you away!

It's pretty cool to see the look on your clients faces.

Did you get to play with one in the office?

The realistic question you have to ask is

by jdclyde In reply to I-Tronix

with a starting price of $4,330, how many laptops does each employee have to regularly go through before you hit your break-even-point?

For people that are not in a oil field or the like, that is three midgrade laptops each.

Anyone out there know of a company that would actually NEED a laptop like this?

(besides the obvious cool factor of course)

Hundreds of them. These are so hot and in demand right now, requests and quotes galore.

I am not working with pricing at $40000.00+ though. Resellers aren't selling them at that much either, the pricing shown is a US suggested retail and there are literally dozens of configurations available.
