If Terminators and Skynet take over Earth, at least you’ll have a laptop that will stand up to them. The Dell E6400 XFR is the latest “toughbook” to hit the market and boy is it ugly. That’s OK, though, because you’re buying this for usability, not design and portability. Inside this ugly beast, you’ll find a decent set of specs including an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 256MB of nVidia Quadro 160M graphics and a big 14.1″ display. Not bad, not bad, but where are features like fingerprint recognition and a webcam for video conferencing?
Need one to throw in the bed of your Ford F-150? The XFR won’t come cheap. It starts at $4300 and weighs a whopping 8.5 pounds to boot.
