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‐tofail” 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 IP65 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.
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 an optional 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 touch screen
No matter how rough, dirty or cold your job gets, you can work with or without gloves using the resistive touch screen that responds to finger pressure with fluid response.
