What do you get when you combine the new Dell Latitude E6410 with a semi-rugged frame? Obviously this ATG model. Yeah, I know, lame joke but I don’t have time to to think of a more clever intro so deal with it.
The Latitude E6410 ATG is basically that. It has the same Core i5 and Core i7 options, the same available hard drives, RAM, webcam and WXGA screen as the non-G.I. Joe model. The only options it doesn’t seem to have is the discrete NVIDIA graphics and optional WXGA+ screen. This model even comes with Dell’s Latitude ON instant on OS. So yeah, this model is just like the standard version.
But this tough guy has been certified to the military standard 810G for shock, vibration, temperature, humidity, and altitude — it looks the part, too. Inside is Dell’s Tri-Metal case, fast-response free-fall-sensor on the hard drive and reinforced display for additional insurance.
The base Core i5, 1GB of RAM model runs $2,114. However, if you happen to have a company credit card handy, you can easily spec one out that includes a Core i7, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, mobile broadband, and a Blu-ray drive for just under $5k. You’ll have to wait a bit for this one even though Dell is now accepting orders. The product page says it won’t ship until 4/23 so you’ll have a good amount of time coming up with an excuse why you spent your boss’s slush fund on a semi-rugged notebook.
