Barry Lenson

Summer ClassesYou’re an online student. So when summer hits, chances are you will take your laptop along on your summer vacations and adventures.

If you like the great and rugged outdoors, here’s some great gear that you’ll enjoy taking along to the beach, to a yurt in the Himalayas – wherever.

Industrial-Strength Laptops for Rugged Terrain

If your summer travels will take you to rough and hostile outdoor locales, here are two computers that can safely come along. These babies will take most any kind of abuse you can dish out.

  • The Panasonic Toughbook laptops were designed to be used on oilfields, at construction sites, and in other rugged locales. They can certainly survive your trip to the beach.
  • The Getac B300 is another super-rugged laptop designed for commercial and industrial use.

Peripherals that Can Hit the Road 

  • The laCie Thunderboltis an ultra-rugged external hard drive that can survive just about anywhere.
  • The Armor X10gx is a rugged tablet computer designed for use in industrial settings. If you’re a tablet user who wants something ultra-durable, this is the one for you.
  • The HP Officejet 100 printer is so rugged that you can close it and check it with your luggage at the airport. It will run off an internal battery if no other power source is available. Bluetooth capable too, so you don’t need to bring cables along.

And Now for Some Fun Stuff Too 

Now that you have picked some robust gear, it’s time for some fun. Here are some creative computer products that are all available from

  • The Hot Cookie USB Cup Warmer looks like an Oreo cookie, but it’s actually a cup warmer that heats up when you plug it into your USB drive.
  • The Ted Baker Typewriter Laptop Sleeve makes your laptop look like an old manual typewriter that you’re toting around. Very retro and cool.
  • The Obi-Wan Kenobe 2 Gigabyte Flash Drive looks like wise old Obi-Wan Kenobe, but the top of his head slides off to reveal an USB jack. Plug him in and save your work, Star Wars style.
  • The USB Pickle Light is a green night light that looks like a pickle. What makes it cool is that you power it up by plugging it into a USB port on your computer. It will add atmosphere to your lean-to in Lanai.
  • The Wonder Woman monitor sitter is a small rubber figurine of Wonder Woman that perches on top of your monitor or laptop screen and keeps an eye on you while you work.
