    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 blow you away!

      The realistic question you have to ask is

      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.
