Rugged/Sturdy Laptop or Notebook Options

I need to replace my PC laptop. I teach at three different schools, travel for training by car, planes and boats (I live in Alaska), do a lot of audio, video and picture editing and curriculum development. I don't mind a heavy computer but I need it to be less than 15 inches wide, over 500 GB hard drive and VERY sturdy. What brand, style, company should I look at?

  1. For sturdiness you can't go too wrong with some sort of Thinkpad.
  2. Hello, yeah I'd advise to look at Lenovo thinkpads or business class laptops from other resellers. Business class laptops are typically much more sturdier than consumer models
  3. What kind of ruggedness are you looking for?

    That's pretty much as rugged as you can get.

    15.4" widescreen WUXGA LED 1920 x 1200
    n Anti-reflective and anti-glare screen treatments

    Intel® Core™ i5-2540M vPro™ Processor

    Video controllers
    – ATI Radeon™ HD6750M (512MB dedicated VRAM)4
    – Intel® QM67 (max. 1915MB shared VRAM with 32-bit)4

    Might be on the expensive side - but rugged notebooks do come with that "ruggedness" premium.
