Dell Advantage for Rugged Laptops

Tough workplaces require tough computing solutions. Our unique rugged solutions can keep you productive in any environment.

Rugged meets state-of-the-art 
Built to withstand even the most challenging conditions, Dell Rugged computing solutions offer exceptional durability thanks to innovative features and technologies.

Rugged Advantage DurabilityBuilt for durability
Dell Rugged computing solutions are designed from the ground up for maximum durability and incorporate a combination of ultra-performance materials for strength and protection. To provide an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, our fully rugged products incorporate both a high-compression-strength ultrapolymer for impacts and magnesium alloy for structural stability.


RuggedReadable in sunlight and darkness
Dell Rugged computing solutions feature displays with exceptional sunlight-readability and impact protection. A combination of reduced reflectivity and enhanced backlight transmissivity make our displays clear and bright in most conditions. An optical-grade cast resin composite LCD cover offers protection and a high-impact strength. For low-light situations when stealth is essential, the displays on our fully rugged products can be turned down to two nits.

Rugged Advantage Cool PressureStay cool under pressure
The QuadCool™ thermal management system, available on Dell fully rugged products, enables high performance in extreme temperatures. QuadCool is a fan-based process that combines passive cooling with forced convection to enhance cooling to critical system components. The fan resides in a sealed IP-65 chamber and is enhanced by conductive cooling for longer battery life and quieter operation.

Rugged Advantage OutsideKeep the outside from getting in
Dell fully rugged computing solutions achieve an IP-65 level of ingress protection with compression gasketing to enable dependable operation in wet, sandy and dirty conditions. All possible points of system ingress have been fully sealed with die-cut and form-in-place compression gasketing with dual-knife edge design.

Rugged Advantage BumpsHandle the bumps and bruises — Dell Rugged computing solutions are constructed with a combination of durable materials for strength and protection. Our semi-rugged products are armored with a Tri-Metal casing consisting of anodized aluminum display back, magnesium alloy wrapped corners, steel hinges and powder-coated base to handle the tough demands of outdoor tasks.
