The wife and I have been watching Jericho on Netflix (not sure how we missed this) and one of the characters(Hawkins) uses a ToughBook. He says it is ruggedized against EMP. My initial thought is that it isn't likely, but it is in a magnesium case so I don't know for sure. I am more curious about who has spent the money on a rugged laptop and what do you recommend. I have a pile of old laptops laying around, but nothing I could take into the field. How you plan on charging it when SHTF would be an interesting helpful as well. So I guess what I am asking: 1. Is the Toughbook really EMP proof? 2. What rugged laptop do you use and recommend? 3. How do you charge it?
