Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone got any thoughts on Army issue Lap Top computers please?
  2. Why, have you 'found' one?
  3. I have got the chance to buy one from a Government Surplus Sale.
  4. I wouldn't bother unless it was Uber cheap

    where you getting it from

    I used to lug a dirty heavy rugadized lappy around on "harcore" field jobs.

    It cost ******* loads weighed loads and I gave up in the end and just wang round with the lightest functioning laptop. If It breaks I buy another one simples
  5. If it's one of those Panasonic Toughbooks we used to lug around, don't bother. Buy something cheaper, faster and lighter and get a decent case.

  6. There as good as any computer of a similar software spec. Just that they can withstand a bit of bashing. I agree with fatboy. Just buy a normal one and don't drop it.
  7. Rip off and pretty crap to be honest.

    Save money by getting a decent laptop and the get a Pelicase or similar box type thingy.

    What spec laptop is it and how much?
