Windows 11 Pro Rugged Laptop

14.0" Outdoor Full-HD Display with Modular Expansion Areas

The TOUGHBOOK 40 is the most versatile 14.0" fully rugged TOUGHBOOK ever built, but doesn't compromise on durability with improved strength and a fully rugged design. In terms of flexibility, the TOUGHBOOK 40 is equally outstanding. It offers a huge array of flexible user configuration options, making it easier to adapt the device to suit any need.

8 user changeable modular areas

The TOUGHBOOK 40 adopts a modular design, featuring eight user-replaceable option areas including the battery, memory, storage, keyboard and four additional expansion areas.

The expansion areas feature several different types of expansion packs including Blu-Ray or DVD optical drives, authentication readers, additional inputs/outputs, long life batteries and secure storage. All of the modular options provide up to 6,048 possible combinations to choose from. 

This unparalleled customisation enables you to help futureproof your investment, simplify ordering and maintenance, and decrease downtime.

Designed for discretion

We understand that it's not always "Business as Usual". In fact, the TOUGHBOOK 40 outshines all else when put amongst the most extreme conditions. With specialist Defence features for night operations such as "Concealed Mode" which at the press of a button removes all light and electronic transmissions, through to a range of enhancements such as rubberised keyboards for those Mining and Field Service workers operating constantly in dusty envrionments, the TOUGHBOOK 40 can be tailored to your needs.

No more device failures, downtime or interrupted work

Engineered from the ground up to be used on-the-go and in harsh environments, TOUGHBOOK 40 is tested to strict military standards (MIL-STD810H) and is the first TOUGHBOOK notebook to obtain a complete IP66 rating.

As our toughest TOUGHBOOK ever, it’s also built to withstand drops of up to 180cm as well as knocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures for ultimate reliability in any environment.

Communications that never stop

To ensure effective communications in the field, the Waves MaxxAudio® Stereo Speakers emphasises the human voice to ensure smooth conversations with up to 3x the accuracy in noisy environments. The new Quad array microphone with AI noise reduction also removes ambient noise from the microphone input.

Secure & Safe

Data and device security is paramount. TOUGHBOOK 40 is a certified Microsoft Secured-core PC and comes equipped with an Intel® Core™ vPro® processor and NVMe OPAL SSD drives. For those needing even more data security, optional quick release NATO approved VIASAT self-encrypting secure drives are also available.
