So we've had a rugged model already today from Toshiba and here's another one that could be even tougher.

The iX104C4 from Xplore Technologies has a 10.4-inch screen along with a 1.2GHz Intel Core Duo processor, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, and connectivity wise - they've packed in WLAN, WWAN, Bluetooth and GPS options.

There's no price as yet though.
