We need a laptop/s to be used in a Car/Truck repair garage. It will be
hooked up to a wireless internet that helps the mechanics as they work on
the cars/trucks. Searching google takes me to a bunch of selling sites, but
are there any manufactures that make more durable laptops? Well, the real
question: Does anyone that works in this environment recommend any
particular brand or starting point?

The most widely used unit is the Panasonic toughbook...

Note that there are two lines of ToughBook.  One is a 'residential'
ruggedized laptop that's stronger than the run of the mill Dell, HP,
IBM, etc, and the other is a 'commercial' ruggedized, waterproof,
drop-proof mil-spec laptop.  You think you want the latter, till you
check the prices, and wonder if good backups and three regular laptops
wouldn't be an easier solution.
