RIDGID announced a new family of rugged laptops and convertible tablet PCs customized by Dell to meet the specific needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Pre-configured with customized software access to RIDGID informational resources and diagnostic tools, the “contractor-grade” laptops are designed to withstand the harshest of conditions encountered on job sites including pounding rain, blowing dust and dirt, extreme temperatures and accidental drops up to four feet.

The laptops are offered in four configurations – a military/contractor-grade rugged laptop, a multi-touch rugged tablet PC, a “business” rugged laptop and a laptop that provides all-day battery life.

Dell Latitude E6400 XFR – Military/Contractor-Grade

  • Ballistic Armor Protection System enables protection and a high drop specification (up to 4 ft)
