There’s no doubting that the Dell Latitude Rugged Tablet 12 is built to survive environments that could seriously damage other tablets. This is all the more laudable as Dell has still managed to squeeze in many of the comparatively niche software and hardware features that field workers in vertical industries expect and need.

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged is a beast of a tablet that's fully fit for the outdoors and treacherous conditions. It packs solid performance in a shock- and dust-proof body, and with two hot-swappable batteries, its one of the longest-lasting rugged tablets we've tested. The Getac F110 remains our Editors' Choice rugged tablet, as it is lighter to carry around, has more secure port covers, and costs almost $300 less than the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet. But if you are in need of a tough tablet that will last all day and has strong multimedia capabilities, the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is an excellent choice. Just be sure to carry a big bag.

The Latitude 12, with its hot-swappable, dual two-cell batteries, can survive for a relatively long amount of time in the field. It lasted 7 hours and 55 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test (continuous Web surfing over Wi-Fi). By opting to buy an additional battery, you can extend its battery life by swapping in freshly charged units.
