Rugged computers differ from commercial computers in a few significant ways. Some of the differences between rugged and commercial computer are as follows:
Rugged portable computers are made out of magnesium which provides protection against drops and other bangs and knocks.
A rugged computer’s disk drive is shock-mounted. The shock-absorbing materials allow the disk drive to withstand drops and vibrations that are prevalent in a moving vehicle.
Fully rugged computers are sealed against the outdoor elements such as rain, dust, dirt and other environmental elements. This also protects against liquid spills, such as coffee or soft drinks, which can often occur in a mobile environment.
Brightness of the display screen
Most semi-rugged and all fully-rugged portable computers offer brighter displays for excellent outdoor viewability.
