No. $1299 for a "TOUGH PAD"
It can also replace the steel plate in bullet proof vests.

Toughbooks / Toughpads ftw. I once had a pentium 3 CF-28 fully rugged Toughbook. I ran over it with my car a few times, took in the shower with me, you know the usual. Very aesthetically appealing design and friggin tough. The power button is a twist action chrome thing.

1 worry I have is battery longevity since probably the case in entirely Magnesium Alloy, it acts as a big heatsink so the battery on the Pad will probably average a higher temperature than a regular Pad just like the Toughbooks.

Speaking of my future laptop, I'd probably rather get a slim semi-rugged Toughbook in the future rather than one of these 'Ultrabooks' that Intel is trying to make.

No, sadly even fully rugged toughbooks arent 'quite' bulletproof. Close though. Search it up on youtube.

@nebun

actually cheap vest have multiple plates of steel, the more steel the better protection the trade off is weight and mobility. Ceramics by nature are brittle and a very poor material to bullet proof anything, i think your thinking of Kevlar composite plate, which is lighter and offer more protection then steel, downside is it hella expensive

Actually, some laptops can stop a close range blast from a 12 gauge shotgun if you hit them in the right place.
