If the Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 is not your style, but need protection for your civilian laptop, then maybe you should get a Laptop Armor padded hard case. It’s been drop tested off a 2nd floor ledge onto concrete (about 10 feet) and both the laptop and Armor survived (video of droppage is on their website). Comes in 4 sizes and 3 colors. The price isn’t bad, between $100 – $200 depending on the size… heck, it’s cheaper than the Panasonic and it will make you look like some kind of special agent… handcuffs optional.
