Asus Unveils Ruggedized Laptop

July 3, 2008



Like the Panasonic Toughbooks before them, bargain barrel laptop maker, Asus, is rolling out a ruggedized laptop designed to deal with the harsh conditions brought on by clumsy young professionals.

It’s got rubberized bumpers to protect it from falls and a drainage system for the keyboard.  So, when you spill the beverage of your choice on the board then throw the laptop away in disgust – guess what, it’ll be fine. Here's the nuts and bolts via Asus
