A family of rugged laptops and convertible tablet PCs, based on the Dell Latitude E-Family and customized by Dell OEM Solutions to meet the specific needs of OEMs, is available. Pre-configured with customized software access to the manufacturer’s informational resources and diagnostic tools, the contractor-grade laptops are designed to work with the company’s inspection systems and be linked with diagnostic tools, such as the SeeSnake® LT1000 laptop interface, and online business tool, RIDGIDConnect™. The laptops, which will be Ridgid branded, are offered in four configurations: a military/contractor-grade rugged laptop, a fully rugged multitouch tablet PC, a “business” rugged laptop, and a laptop that provides all-day battery life. The manufacturer’s applications and resources are built into the laptops at the factory; a full suite of powerful monitoring, recording, and data management tools will be ready to use right out of the box, saving customers time.
