Rugged vs. The Auto ShopWe put a Rugged tablet and laptop through a grueling gauntlet of real-world tests in a local auto shop, just to see if they could survive a punishing day in the garage. Spills, sparks, heat, hood slams, grease, grime, motor oil…even the full crushing weight of a car, nothing can stop the Rugged from working as hard as you do. See for yourself.
Rugged Lab TourDell Rugged notebooks and tablets are tested to withstand the world’s harshest environments. See the wide variety of military-grade testing our Rugged notebooks and tablets are subjected to in the Dell Extreme Computing Test Lab. Tests include extreme heat/cold, water ingress-protection, salt-fog, drop, vibration and more.
Elephants AliveFrom bumpy off-road travel to oppressive heat, corrosive wind-driven dust and sand to African thunderstorms, Elephants Alive researchers depend on the extreme durability of Dell Rugged devices to analyze gathered data to identify elephants by their unique ear shape and track their movements.
Everyone's favorite. But don't just take our word for it.
