I was surprised by the speed of the integrated SSD in the Rugged Tablet; it's faster than the SSD in the Rugged Extreme notebook I reviewed a few months ago. The SSD is just as quick as a consumer 2.5" SSD. Networking is excellent, but I expect that from an enterprise class device.

Battery Tests

That is some intense battery life! I wasn't too shocked because the tablet has two hot-swap batteries and they are quite big. The device also doesn't use too much power, its Core M processor has a TDP of only 4.5W, and everything else is low power as well.
