Chrome
I wonder what Microsoft's reaction was to the Chrome OS option.

Re: Rugged?
Certainly not as rugged as the ones built for field use, but Dell says they meet military drop specifications, so it sounds like the new notebooks should take a decent beating. I've never taught a class of computer-toting elementary school students, so I'm not sure how often devices get damaged, and how important the extra durability is. Ruggedness is certainly a factor to consider, but if I were buying for a one-to-one classroom deployment, I'm not sure it's the first thing I'd prioritize. But as the article mentions, that's why Dell is also selling Chromebooks and several different kinds of tablets.

Rugged?
Is it really "rugged" or is it just less easily broken than the typical laptop? I'd like to see a line of "fragile" or "dainty" laptops for high tea.
