Dell Latitude XT2 XFR Rugged Tablet

Dell just introduced the Latitude XT2 XFR; the rugged version of the XT2 multitouch tablet machine I've mentioned a few times before only with a name that is more of a mouth full. So for those of you waiting for a rugged machine before jumping into multitouch wait no longer. The short spec list is 12 inch multitouch display, 5lbs and 1.5 inches thick and mil spec badassness! It also comes with Vista. I guess Windows 7 isn't rugged certified? Just as well, first thing I do when I get a new machine is format it anyway. For all the awesomeness it'll set you back some serious coin. The base model is $3,600 but I loaded one up for just under $5k! I don't think I can justify one of these to Nick, but damn!

Nice vid, but they don't actually show the laptop starting up again after all the torture tests :-)

As for Nick, just tell him you'll re-write all your code with caps-lock on, making extensive use of the with statement. I'm sure he'll see reason soon enough. ;-)
