With these latest updates and improvements, the ARMOR X10gx tablet remains a top-tier tool for rugged computing jobs in fields such as utilities, public safety, construction, manufacturing, military, and other applications that require computing power in a nearly indestructible package.

The Armor X10gx is tough and ideal for basic computing tasks in rough environments. Just watch out for its heat and high price

What the X10gx lacks in processing power, it makes up for in toughness. I can't begin to describe the sheer abuse it endured in my care. For example, the drop video took multiple takes, and that was only after I carelessly tossed the rugged tablet around the office before stuffing it in the freezer.
Not only did the X10gx absorb the abuse, it showed no scuffs, scratches or scrapes. I can easily see it surviving the day-to-day of a construction site or otherdemanding environment.
That said, it's not without flaws. Besides its relatively low computing power and high price, it gets very hot. It's almost painful to the touch. Also, the programmable buttons can only control screen brightness and the fingerprint scanner doesn't work out of the box.
Ultimately, the X10gx is exactly what it claims to be: a rugged tablet. With its price, it is not a consumer device. But it's fit for the basic computing tasks needed in the field. And thanks to its Flexspace Compartments suitable for an RFID tracker, GPS functionality and optional WWAN antenna, an organization can fit the X10gx for life on the go.

Tough yet fun

In my first impression of the ARMOR X10gx, I called the machine “fun” and I’m sticking to that. While a rugged tablet does not fit into my life, I found myself enjoying the experience of toting the ARMOR by its handle and heading on my way. No need for a protective case or pack. Just grab and go. The speedy SSD made a big impact on me, and I’m seriously looking into upgrading to one...

Pricing depends on your order requirements, but rugged computers do not come cheap. DRS offers many accessories and peripherals, such as mounting and docking stations. Full details on the DRS website. That one small flaw aside, the ARMOR X10gx performed solidly for me. Tough yet fun.
