This definitely does not seem like a very good buy. I have an HP laptop that was not nearly this expensive and came with everything I needed. I would think twice before getting this little guy!

I woudl've thought that any type of "rugged" laptop would have SSDs in it to make it even more resilient to falls/drops.  Possibly even an SSD and hard drive combo would be more appealing.

 I thought the same thing. But, with the cost of SSD's still, I'm sure most companies will include a standard HDD for now until the price of SSD's drop, or their capacity increases a lot more...

 

Makes sense to us though!

 hmm. I wonder how these compare in cost, to the Panasonic ToughBooks. Maybe if these are a cheaper way to go, I could get my workplace to switch!

4 gb modules?

"Two 200-pin DDRII SODIMM sockets each for 1GB/2GB (8GB Maximum)"

 As I understand this statement, there are two sockets for RAM modules, each socket supports 1 or 2GB of ram....now how do you get 8gb?

I'd love to own one of these, so that I'd have something I'd feel comfortable taking with me out camping, but for the limited use it'd see, it hardly justifies the cost.  Sadly.
