Some people like to take things easy. They like to work in a cool and calm environment where everything is just how they like it. I admire those people, that’s how most people live. However, this is not an article for people looking for a thin and light laptop for everyday use. No! This article is for the men and women that would have it no other way but rough. For some people wanting a rugged laptop that can withstand water and shock is a choice, but for others, it is merely a way of life. In this article, the best waterproof and shockproof laptops for the year 2020 will be discussed. You will be able to see them in person very shortly in stores that sell laptop and desktop computers.

Here is the list of the top rugged laptops:

Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme

If you have had any reason to google rugged laptops before, the name Dell would have popped up somewhere in the search result and it is for a good reason. The Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme offers the best of both worlds; Decent performance to handle any everyday task, and an exterior built to withstand the test of time, and a fall.

SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel Core i3-6100U | RAM 4GB | GRAPHICS: Intel Graphics 520 | SCREEN SIZE: 14-inch 1366 X 768 resolution | STORAGE: 128 GB SSD | WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, and optional GPS | WEIGHT: 3.9kg

The rigid magnesium alloy chassis that the Dell latitude 14 Rugged Extreme features makes it capable of handling anything that the world could decide to throw at it. Even though the base model comes with only 4GB of RAM, there is an option to get one with more RAM so you can surf the web with Google’s Chrome browser seamlessly.

Dell Latitude 14 Rugged

Some people don’t like to go to the extremes when buying laptops like the ones on this list, so I present to you, the Dell Latitude 14 Rugged (the extreme is gone now).

SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel Core i5-6300U | RAM 8GB | GRAPHICS: AMD Radeon R7 M360 | SCREEN SIZE: 14-inch 1920 X 1080 resolution | STORAGE: 128 GB SSD | WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, GPS, and Ethernet | WEIGHT: 1.9kg

This laptop is still a beast even with its drastic reduction in weight. This Dell comes with a 6th generation Intel core i5 and 8GB of RAM to make sure that you are always getting the best out of your laptop where ever you are. The AMD graphics is a discrete graphics card which means that you can still carry out some light gaming after a long day outside. Oh, and it rocks a matte finish that will hold less scratches on it.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-33

This is the only 2-in-1 laptop in this list, and that’s because it is not an easy list for 2-in-1 laptops to get on. Therefore, you can bet that the Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 was rightly named as it packs a lot of punch and take it too.

SPECIFICATIONS: CPU: Intel Core i5-7300U | RAM 4GB | GRAPHICS: Intel Graphics 620 | SCREEN SIZE: 12-inch 2160 X 1440 resolution | STORAGE: 256GB SSD WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, GPS, and Ethernet | WEIGHT: 2.76kg

This might be a 2-in-1 laptop, but it is probably to most rugged 2-in-1 laptop in the world, and it kicks ass when it comes to performance too. The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is equipped with a 7th generation Intel core i5 processor and 8 GB of RAM to provide excellent performance for everyday tasks, or not-so-everyday tasks. Panasonic leads the indestructible laptop industry.
