    That red looks bad a$$ , if you want to go for gshock type style points that is...:cool:
    More generally I love the toughbooks and miss the days when the reps would demo them to us and do thing like "accidentally " drop them or send them skidding across a conference table on the the floor.

    The audible gasps among those who haven't seen their demos before were highly entertaining :)

    1200 nits display. Weren't the older Toughbooks and Toughpads in the 3k nits range at one time?

    They have in the past and you can still get that as a custom option on at least one model if you are a big corporate account.

    The reason they don't more broadly offer them is that those really bright displays also tend to have terrible color gamut (like only supporting 16,000 colors) and contrast control issues.

    It's of course a moving target, as Samsung's new S21 Ultra shows with it's peak 1200-1500 nits peak brightness, but even their that's limited to very specific conditions such as HDR video and is not broadly implemented (across the board the S21 Ultra display is closer to 800 nits max)

    As the engineer in me says, it's always about compromises somewhere and for instance brightness along with uniformity challenges increase almost logarithmically as you increase screen size.
