Features & Design

Double your edge
Double your edge
The Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is the first ruggedized device of its kind to feature a flip-hinge display that seamlessly switches between notebook and tablet. With this kind of versatility, you’ll always have the right tool for the job, no matter what conditions you’re facing.
Above-and-beyond strength
Above-and-beyond strength
Push the limits: For some jobs, you don’t know where the edge is until you’ve already gone over it. That’s why we push to the edge and beyond with a rigorous “test-to-fail” methodology during development and third-party certify our products to meet military standard (MIL-STD) requirements*.

Built with a backbone: This notebook can take some serious punishment, thanks to its rigid magnesium alloy backbone and shock-absorbent ultra-polymer materials.

Nothing gets under its skin: All entry points are sealed by compression gaskets and a dual-knife-edge design that’s certified for IP-65 protection* from sand, dust and liquid.

Stays cool under pressure: In heated situations, Rugged Extreme doesn’t break a sweat. It’s built to last in extreme temperatures with fourth-generation QuadCool™ thermal management.

Built for the real world

Great visibility outdoors
In all lighting conditions, you can easily stay focused on your screen. The Direct-View outdoor-readable display is designed to reduce reflections, preserve contrast and conserve battery life.

Backlit keyboard with stealth
With a customizable RGB backlight, you can switch between red, green, blue and white lighting, allowing the keyboard to remain visible but unobtrusive. A stealth key lets you stay undercover, turning off all lights and sounds with a single touch.

Resistive multi-touch screen
No matter how rough, dirty or cold your job gets, you can work with or without gloves using the resistive multi-touch screen that responds to finger pressure with fluid response.
Made to go wherever your office is

Compact design: This 12" convertible notebook is ideal for tight spaces or situations that require a convenient hand-held device.

Long battery life: With up to 7 hours of battery life* from the standard 4-cell battery, you can keep plugging away without having to plug in.

Universal docking: Easily switch between vehicles and workspaces with universal docking solutions from Dell and Havis that are compatible with all Latitude Rugged devices.
Performance where it counts
