Model-specific specs include:
- Toughbook F8: Billed by Toshiba as the worldï¿¼s lightest 3G-ready computer, it's equipped with a 160-GB shock-mounted hard drive, 14.1-inch display, six hours of battery life, and an integrated handle that spoke to the girl inside of me who sometimes makes product selections based purely on color.
- Toughbook W8: This ultraportable comes with a 160-GB shock-mounted hard drive, 12.1-inch display, integrated DVD multidrive, and up to seven hours of battery life.
- Toughbook T8: This tablet PC sports a 120-GB shock-mounted hard drive, 12.1-inch touch screen, stylus, and screen-rotating software, and up to seven hours of battery life.
How rugged it rugged? This trio of Toughbooks -- which, according to eWeek, are geared toward general business use, as well as vertical markets, such as government and health care -- survived 30-inch drops to the base of each unit while operating.
