Toughbook or consumer grade?

Are Toughbook and Toughpad devices really worth the higher initial price? When it comes to the concrete floors and loading docks of warehousing, cheap tablets can end up costing a lot more.

Consumer-grade tablets. Tempting, but can they handle the abuse?

Consumer devices aren't designed for life in a warehouse. They can't survive small falls, can't protect themselves from a few drops of rain and struggle keep you connected. Time and again, businesses that put consumer-grade tablets and laptops in harm's way find that damaged machines and constant downtime costs far more than saved by purchasing lower-priced hardware.

If they break, we can just get more… right?

They're cheap after all. However, when you factor in lost productivity to downtime plus additional IT overhead to repair failing fragile devices and provision replacements, inexpensive hardly rapidly becomes unaffordable.

How Toughbook and Toughpad earn their keep in warehousing

Toughbook and Toughpad devices are designed to military specifications for the most demanding environments. With failure rates at or below 2% (5 times lower than the industry average of 11%), Toughbook devices return more value for the price than any other mobile computer in the industry.
