To complete the most difficult tasks in the world often requires some of the most rigorous and arduous training, and it is this high standard and strict requirements that have created Dell’s new generation of Rugged laptops. Each system is repeatedly tested to exceed the norm and raise the bar for “ruggedness”. From factories to emergency rescues, warehouse operations to offshore oil rigs, professionals need equipment that combines reliability and connectivity to operate 24/7. Dell, on the other hand, is a Tier 1 supplier with fully rugged notebooks, 2-in-1s and tablets to handle harsh environments.
Dell’s Latitude Rugged goes through the rigors of raising the bar for ‘ruggedness’
National Geographic explorer and first big-wall climber Mike Libecki is one of the most demanding Rugged users. To date, he has completed more than 80 expeditions, including leaving his footprints in rare places. And recently, Mike has completed his trip to China, and like his trips to Peru, French Polynesia, Greenland, Nepal and India, Dale Rugged is his indispensable partner, escorting him all the way.
Mike said: “Whether in Greenland or Antarctica, the most important thing for me is that the equipment that I carry with me must not fail, and it also needs to work 24/7 in its best condition – which seems to be Dell Rugged’s raison d’etre. I’m looking forward to taking the next generation of Dell Rugged laptops to the furthest corners of the world and pushing the envelope together.”

Specifically designed and tested for potential failure points, the Rugged range is rigorously tested before each product is born, in order to provide unparalleled performance for demanding users like Mike and McLaren. Today, Dell introduced the latest additions to the Rugged family: the Dell Latitude 7424 Rugged Extreme, the Dell Latitude 5424 and the Latitude 5420 Rugged Laptops. Every Rugged PC user is different, but they all share the same need to combine end-to-end security with the reliability and manageability of a Dell Latitude, no matter where they work or what they are doing. .
