    Hi there,

    Just been asked a interesting query - a friend is doing a car repairs and needs a portable computer to work outside running car diagnostic based programs. However he wants it to be durable enough to not be worried about rain, spills or taking a bit of a beating. He is asking me about the Itronix Gobook III although it took me a while to take that question seriously looking at it but I can imagine this thing will take quite a beating.

    Budget, is a tough one.. I can't see him paying over £400-500 honestly. The one above he is looking at for around £200 so I'm drifting towards that laptop or one of similar field as I can't see such a resistant laptop having good specs at that price.

    Any suggestions or any alternative shock resistant and some what water resistant sleeves/covers known for laptops? Just in case I am missing something.

    Dell XTR or Panasonic toughbook. I had a play with an old BT pentium toughbook once. It was a beast but it took one helluva beating.
