The Durabook CA10 doesn't mind short drops up to four feet.

GammaTech on Tuesday announced that its semi-rugged and ultra-mobile Durabook model CA10 tablet is now available to purchase. That's provided you're willing to spend $1,299 (MSRP) on a slate that's built for people who don't work in typical office environments. Unlike your run-of-the-mill tablet, the Durabook CA10 meets various military standards for dust, water, drops, shock, and temperatures as low as 0 degrees.

Sounds tough, though GammaTech is equally excited about the tablet's battery life, which is supposed to last around 6-7 hours depending on configuration.

"Among its many great features, the GammaTech Durabook CA10 semi-rugged tablet provides long battery life, various wireless connections, dust and spray resistance capabilities, and, of course, our renowned GammaTech reliability and durability,” stated Jen Chen, GammaTech president. "These are all items that are vital to those whose work takes them away from safe, clean, everything-is-provided office environments."

The CA10 sports a 10.1-inch display with a 1280x800 resolution. It has an Intel Atom N2600 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, up to 2GB of DDR3-800 RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB built-in storage, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, integrated LAN, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and other odds and ends.
