Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme review

 

Dell's hybrid laptop is ready to weather the elements

Demonstrably water-resistant ; Long projected battery life ; Resistive touchscreen

Tough to use one-handed ; Very rigid latch ; Blurry display in motion

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme, the first rugged laptop-tablet hybrid, was built to withstand all sorts of environmental hazards, and it shows.

Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme

 

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is a tough hybrid-convertible laptop with a pivoting screen that gives it tablet-like functionality. It will serve you well if your work takes you to extreme environments.

Ruggedized to withstand extreme conditions. Touch screen is readable in bright sunlight. Screen flips to facilitate touch use. Hard drive and battery are removable without tools. Good battery life. No bloatware.

Big and heavy. Low 1,366-by-768-resolution screen. Lots of extra bezel space around the display.

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is certainly a good choice for the mobile user who cares more about surviving dust storms than surviving suburbia. It can handle most, if not all, the abuse directed toward it, short of a direct hit from small arms...

Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme Convertible Review

 

Robust. The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme feels at home even in the most adverse environments. The convertible has a robust case, combined with a strong processor and good input devices. But at the price Dell is asking, buyers will certainly have to...

Stable case, Certifications, Bright display, Good range of connections, Maintenance-friendly, Runs quietly, Good battery life, 36-month warranty, Good keyboard, The bright display and robust case

CPU and GPU throttle under full load, High price, Though it is understandable why the computer is only equipped with an HD display, a higher resolution display should at least be available as an option

Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme Review and Ratings

 

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is a tank of a 2-in-1. Its weight makes it a bear in tablet mode, but its convertible design and hardened exterior make it irresistible for mission-critical field work.

Ridiculous, superhero-caliber ruggedness ; Convertible screen ; Tons of upgrade options ; Amply field-serviceable

Massive weight ; Potentially weak power plug design

After fully recharging each laptop, we set it to Power Save mode (as opposed to Balanced or High Performance mode) and made a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged rundown test. In this test, we loop a video (a locally...
