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.

Comment

Model: Those who are looking for a robust, reliable tablet specifically designed for outdoor use can consider the Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet. It features a rather large 11.6” display and glove capable touchscreen, made from shock absorbent material and sealed from dust, sand and liquid. Even on a bright sunny day, the display is readable thanks to its very bright Gorilla Glass 3 display. However its color space is rather limited compared to other tablets.

The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet, meets military standards. It has been engineered to withstand temperatures from -28.9 °C (-20 Fahrenheit) to 63,78 °C (145 degrees Fahrenheit) while in operation. In addition, it will survive falls from 3 feet (91.44 cm). The entry level model comes with an Intel Core M-5Y10C processor with 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD. The battery for this model is hot swappable and the battery life is 7 hours 55 minutes during continuous web surfing according to Dell. However, it is surprising that the model does not comes with GPS, despite being made for outdoor use. Notable features of this Windows 8.1 tablet are a fingerprint reader, a smart card reader, a 2 MP front camera, and a 8 MP rear camera.

Intel HD Graphics 5300: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in Core M processors from the Broadwell Y-series (4.5 W TDP). 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

5Y71: Broadwell-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5300 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.784 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

77%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
