Latitude Rugged Extreme 12

Flip into action

12'' laptop built for real-world performance and security. Featuring a flip-hinge design for versatility in any environment.


The Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme is the first ruggedized device of its kind to feature a flip-hinge display that seamlessly switches between notebook and tablet. With this kind of versatility, you’ll always have the right tool for the job, no matter what conditions you’re facing.

Above-and-beyond strength

  • Push the limits: For some jobs, you don’t know where the edge is until you’ve already gone over it. That’s why we push to the edge and beyond with a rigorous “test-to-fail” methodology during development and third-party certify our products to meet military standard (MIL-STD) requirements.
  • Built with a backbone: This notebook can take some serious punishment, thanks to its rigid magnesium alloy backbone and shock-absorbent ultra-polymer materials.
  • Nothing gets under its skin: All entry points are sealed by compression gaskets and a dual-knife-edge design that’s certified for IP-65 protection from sand, dust and liquid.
  • Stays cool under pressure: In heated situations, Rugged Extreme doesn’t break a sweat. It’s built to last in extreme temperatures with fourth-generation QuadCool™ thermal management.

Built for the real world

  • Great visibility outdoors: In all lighting conditions, you can easily stay focused on your screen. The Direct-View outdoor-readable display is designed to reduce reflections, preserve contrast and conserve battery life.
  • Backlit keyboard with stealth: With a customizable RGB backlight, you can switch between red, green, blue and white lighting, allowing the keyboard to remain visible but unobtrusive. A stealth key lets you stay undercover, turning off all lights and sounds with a single touch.
  • Resistive multi-touch screen: No matter how rough, dirty or cold your job gets, you can work with or without gloves using the resistive multi-touch screen that responds to finger pressure with fluid response.

  • Universal docking: Easily switch between vehicles and workspaces with universal docking solutions from Dell and Havis that are compatible with all Latitude Rugged devices.

Performance where it counts
