Rugged Laptop

Postby strud » Fri Nov 05, 2021 7:06 pm

Finally bit the bullet and bought myself a nice ruggedised Laptop (revived/overhauled)

It's the Lattitude Rugged extreme 7414

Bought it from these guys in Perth (Carlo is super helpful)

Lots of other uses for it other than Rocketry, but it is VERY well suited for rocketry related applications :D

Nice! What's the screen brightness like when used outdoors? I've always struggled to see laptop screens out at a launch site.

It can run up to 1000nits, but apparently has some other changes to improve daylight readability rather than just relying on brightness.

Hopefully I get it early next week.....

It will be a great workshop machine as well, since it has all the I/O ports you could ever ask for as well as being rugged.

This video gives an example of what this thing can cope with.... funny thing I visited that test facility at Dell in the Austin facility in my prior job....
