When I went off to college I sold my dirt bike and drum set to by a laptop. Sad, sad state of affairs... So I was protective of my laptop, I didn't take it to class and rarely took it to the library. I typically kept it on my desk for doing work because it was nowhere near rugged enough to endure the day to day abuse of student life.
Well I'd say this laptop from RM is student-ready! Check out the youTube video after the jump. They drive over this laptop with multiple cars to prove it can take a whooping. If the second car dragging it under the tire doesn't hurt it, I'd say it can survive banging around in a backpack!
