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.
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.
Compact design: This 12" convertible notebook is ideal for tight spaces or situations that require a convenient hand-held device.
WiFi and broadband options: Stay connected out in the field with 802.11ac WiFi and a dedicated GPS.
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.

Rock-solid storage: Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme offers all solid-state storage that’s fast, reliable and easily accessible. Simply open the protective cover and remove your drive when you need to.
Core strength: Beneath the durable exterior is a powerful 4th Gen Intel® Core™ processor ready to conquer your biggest tasks.
Multitask like you mean it: Stay on top of critical jobs using the latest productivity tools with up to Windows 7 Professional or
