Glacier rugged laptop customers span an array of industries, organizations and environments. These environments can be challenging from several respects and include shock, vibration, water, chemicals, dust, dirt and extremes of temperature. The user can also pose a “challenge” to the device. They are focused on the task at hand and the computer is just another tool to get the job done. A rugged laptop computer will be subjected to a bang, a drop, splashes, stressed hinges and multiple twists and turns to the carry handle.
