The most important feature of the laptop is its durability. If you’re working outdoors, in a production area, or in an environment where it tends to get dirty, you’ll want a team that can handle it all. Fortunately, several brands make computers that are stronger than those in common use. The best? That the quality and inner power are maintained.
Although commodity computer parts are more reliable every year, and vendors test their parts plenty before they ship them, there’s no guarantee all those parts will work reliably together, in your particular environment, under your particular workload. And there’s always the possibility, however slim, of getting very, very unlucky with subtly broken components.
Because we’re rational scientists, we test stuff in our native environment, and collect data to prove our computer is stable.
