Dell Latitude E6400 XFR - 14.1in Rugged Laptop video review

Read the full Dell Latitude E6400 XFR - 14.1in Rugged Laptop review

Overall, the E6400 XFR is a deliberately different proposition to competing rugged laptops. It's not best suited to situations where you really need to keep the weight down and it doesn't have the battery life or mission critical ruggedness for the most demanding environments, but it is very powerful, making it a useful alternative for anyone that doesn't want to sacrifice on performance.

I was kinda hoping to see Riyad drive his car over it again, but hey...

$3700 (US) for a laptop you can drop 3 feet while open ? I have dropped my 299$ eeepc that far and it also still work perfect.

Try using that cheap toy of yours in a hot desert or under the rain. See if it survives.

Considering the water test in the review, I wouldn't rely on the Dell laptop to work during heavy rain (it's quite an image though!). And when the first eee breaks, you've still got nine spares!

Ok Bob15... I laughed so hard after reading your post that my sides literally hurt! You think your eeepc is "rugged"? Granted, this Dell XFR is just as much a joke. It's not much more rugged than your eeepc. For truely rugged laptop computing there is only 1 brand out there that meets or exceeds both MIL-STD-810 and IP65 testing, and that's the Panasonic Toughbook. No other laptop even deserves the right to use the word "rugged".

It's one thing for an eeepc to survive being dropped, it's another thing entirely to depend on a laptop that was "designed" to be dropped and survive. FYI, if you've never handled a rugged laptop, let alone a XFR, your opinion is just that, and in my opinion, its worth less than crap.
