Not Your Ordinary Computer

Taking a more economical yet tough approach to computing, the RuffPad Recon, RuffPad Nomad, RuffPad Scribe, RuffPad Tablet, RuffBook Spec, RuffBook Tech, RuffBook Junior, RuffBook Max, RuffBook Pro, and RuffBook Ultra don’t cut corners to deliver excellent performance and reliability. Instead of limiting customer’s choices, Ruff PC allows you to select from 10 systems, depending on your needs, ranging from PDAs to laptops. The International Data Corporation (IDC) reports that the “average cost of repairing or replacing a notebook is $1,200.” Our advice? Pick up a top-of-the-line system, housed in a magnesium alloy case “20+ times stronger than plastic”, that can withstand “harshest environmental conditions such as -20C and 55C temperatures.”

Bottom Line

When it comes to ruggedness and portability, nothing beats Ruff PC’s offerings. However you choose, all their systems come well equipped with quality components, such as Intel processors. In fact, this RuffBook Spec has a 1.73-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and is priced at only $1,995.
