There are ARM processor in laptops(Samsung Chromebooks), that doesn't make them any more sturdier than x86 laptops with SSD.

There are x86 processor in tablets(Atom & Core i5 ULV), that doesn't make x86 tablets any less sturdier than ARM tablets.

CPU have nothing to do with how durable a device is physically, if you think otherwise kookoo.gif

that's not my point my point is that the internals of an arm device are tougher. they tend to be simpler and more integrated. if you drop your chromebook, the internals are probably more likely to be ok even if the externals are damaged

Oh look mil spec for consumer products. Oh jeez who's "tsk"ing now.

Toast always lands butter-side up, so why not just smear butter on our iPhones?

most business/milspec laptops are a joke. i remember a dell from a few years back that was milspec that couldn't survive a 3 feet fall. theres also a vast difference between a milspec laptop and something that goes in extremely expensive military hardware

if you really want a tough laptop you can always buy a toughbook. but those are vastly different (and relatively heavy)

Oh so we're going on personal experience then. Well it's good to see you concede something.

Oh cmon dude I at least gave you some alternate sources of info when I said what I did. Not really sure this conversation is going to be productive anymore...

you gave me an external source that doesn't provide any examples of real world tests. here's all it says about durability: "new smudge-resistant and wear-resistant, tungsten-colored design..The HP ProBook b-series includes standard features such as bead-blast aluminum display enclosures, a magnesium-reinforced ABS chassis and a bottom-case drain that helps protect against accidental minor spills on the keyboard."

i'm not denying it's possible to create a tough x86 device. i'm arguing that doing so requires more cost and weight because the actual internals of the device are delicate. whereas with an arm device you can create something lighter with less protection because the internals are tougher. internals.

I mean I'd really be interested to see some design or engineering details that showed the differences in construction or manufacture... *sigh*
