      Funny that dells calls it rugged since Toughbook has been calling their laptop that for many years. I believe I first saw it call rugged over 12 years ago. By the way their 14" toughbook 54 lite is only 1500

                                            Oh, so this laptop has a touch screen that actually works? I miss resistive so much. Capacitive is completely inaccurate bullshit. If our keyboards and mice were as inaccurate as capacitive touch screens, we wouldn't put up with it. Yet for some reason we keep using this capacitive garbage.

All of the features that Dell has on this laptop were on Toughbooks years ago. It would be interesting to do a comparison of the CF-31 and this laptop to see who makes the better machine.
