If you're in the market for a ruggedized, kill-or-be-killed type of laptop, perhaps one which closely resembles a mutated Speak & Spell, then the Augmentix XTG630 might be right up your alley. The 14.1-inch laptop is based on the Dell Latitude architecture, and features a Core 2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of RAM, a removable 80GB hard drive plus a 32GB SSD, an Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics chipset, 802.11a/g/draft n, mobile broadband in EVDO or HSDPA flavors, Bluetooth 2.0, and a whole load of ports and jacks for your connectivity pleasure. Of course, the XTG630 has been tested to "Military Standards" for ruggedness, meaning you can operate the laptop in extremely low (minus 4 degrees) or extremely high (140 degrees) temperatures, drop it from a height of 3-feet, soak it in 4-inches of rain per hour, or run the system in an environment with 95 percent humidity. Additionally, the laptop says it will do "whatever it takes" to gather enemy intelligence, and will also "take a bullet for you."
