If you're going to be in the market for a new laptop that can withstand even the harshest of environments, you might want to check out the updated Toughbook line from Panasonic.
Their new Toughbook 52 is based on the same idea of taking just about anything you can throw at it, including drops from 2.5 feet in the air. You'll also get a widescreen, a Santa Rosa chip and a Verizon EV-DO 3G wireless card built-in.
These will be available starting in July for $1699.
