    Safn,

    It's hard for me to believe that this heavy thing was designed for a school kid to lug around . I grabbed the handle and started doing curls when I unboxed it.

    To the guys who picked one up,
    Is the 3E closer to fully rugged or semi rugged toughbooks?
    Also how well do they perform?

    The 3e is not fully rugged but is built pretty good, I wouldn't be afraid to drop it. Lighter than the NL3. They are quick as they have a 64gb SSD and 2gb of ram. Runs Windows 8 or 10 decently but they are 32 bit and must be gpt partitioned, so no Linux or Windows 7 although sheepman got Linux to sorta work.

    You can put an SSD in the NL3 to kick it up.

    When this thread first went up, I read that a few school districts were using the 3Es but were running into technical problems.
    They say that's why there were so many of them up at the auction sites. Specifically, the keyboard dock is supposed to have been giving people problems.

    Was wondering how well these things have held up since guys got them. Haven't had any problems with the NL3 and in fact, just gave it to another cousin.

    I think most school districts have switched over to chromebooks now, so I expect the last batches of these 3Es to be up for auction soon.

    Finally got the 3E for personal use. For size reference, I took a picture of it next to an m34
