Choosing the right rugged laptop at the start can keep you in the long run. Military and public-safety-grade laptops are ideal for demanding use. But you need to know what to look for.
Weight and Size of Rugged Laptops
Portability can be a deal-breaker for tech. Nobody wants to haul a ponderous computer around all day. If additional protection and large screen size are essential for your work, extra weight was worth it. On-field teams like military and public safety personnel need a lightweight, functional, portable, and rugged laptop.
The Winmate L140TG-4 gives you 14 inches of screen space, IP65, and MIL-STD-810H toughness at 5.6lbs (2.55kg). That’s pretty light for a rugged laptop of this size than the other competitors.
Anti-Glare Screen to Save Your Eyes
Screen glare under the sunlight can hinder work, ranging from unclear visual to health issues like eye fatigue and headache. Construction, marine, and logistics businesses work outside in all weathers. So anti-glare technology is a must. No squinting means more productivity and fewer wrinkles.
Readability relies on high-resolution as well as anti-glare. Staring at a low-resolution screen with a low refresh rate all day can lead to eye strain. So, choose a laptop with at least a 1920 x 1080 full HD screen.

Flexibility and Freedom
Flexible dual hinges allow the L140TG to transform from a laptop into a tablet computer.
