    I am not sure if this answers you question, but many new notebook and tablets have shock mounted hard drives, to prevent data loss from hits and drops. (the Acer, Toshiba tablets)

    I don't think you are going to find a Superman bulletproof tablet. It is really a delicate piece of equipment - you can easily damage the hinge for convertable tablets. (this was a big problem with early tablets)

    The Panasonic Toughtbook like of Tablets are very rugged. There are some specialiazed tablets as well that are even more rugged, but you're talking some serious expense.

    An engineer from British Telecom called a couple of weeks back to test my home line.
    I was very curious as to his laptop ~ a Panasonic Toughbook.
    I asked him how he believed it operated, to which his words were
    "it's as strong as iron, as heavy as lead but costs like gold"

    A bit of a mixed up metal appliance don't you think!!

    Panasonic Toughbooks are good. My dad has one and I used it sometimes and its great. We have not try throwing off the roof yet, that was not be great for a tablet even if it is a toughbook. The Touchpad is a bit slow to use for my liking, but thats where the stylus comes into play.

    I like the Toughbooks!
    I played around with one a few months back, loved the feel and look of it.
    I never tried dropping it though..
