Dell XT2 XFR Rugged

Performance away from the mains is more important on a device such as this, and the 42Wh six-cell battery managed a slightly disappointing one hour and 57 minutes when looping PCMark Vantage. Expect around three hours under normal use with the brightness at half mast.

Make sure the catches are done up before heading out in the rain

Verdict

The XT2 XFR obviously has a very niche market, but aside from its touch capabilities temporarily ceasing after its spell in the freezer, it appears as rugged as Dell claims it to be. Of course, all that protection comes at a price, but it is in line with the competition, most notably Panasonic’s Toughbook CF-19. It would be nice if it were a bit lighter, especially since it’s designed to be used in the hands, but overall it’s a decent ruggedised tablet-style laptop. ®
