Testing out Dell's claims at a lake
I spent two days in Texas to see and experiment with Dell's new rugged lineup. The first day we all boarded a boat and two jet skis on Lake Travis and proceeded to beach at a limestone island in the center of the lake.
Here, Dell's Chris Morley is throwing a Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme from the boat onto the island. Chris wanted us to see that they [Dell] are "kicking Panasonic's ass." Chris threw the notebook multiple times onto the hard, rocky island.
I should mention that I captured all this on a Facebook Live video, which is embedded below. The notebook was very durable and was even on display on the following day when we went to Dell's office.
A more interactive experience was with the Latitude 12 Rugged tablet, which was loaded with an interactive map that would ping its GPS coordinate and then display it on the map. An image of the course was setup, and boundary lines were drawn on the map. I have to admit, it was a little difficult to track my position on a lake while going 55MPH, but nevertheless, the data gathered showed how terrible I am at following directions while enjoying the jet ski. I also documented this on Facebook Live - it's embedded below.
