That their job. To climb high telecommunication tower and do the testing up there. I wonder if this toughbook do good in volcano environment. I want to do research there. My past laptop fallen into slow moving lava last time.
It's all great except a small body.
When I see mobile skilled professionals (telecoms installers etc) out and about, most have Toughbooks.
