Used rugged laptops?

Is there much of a market in used rugged laptops?  I'm looking for
something like a used Panasonic ToughBook, but is there a better
source than eBay?  Im afraid that an eBay laptop would be "I've kicked
this around for a few years and it's really abused, wanna buy it?"...

You need to look carefully at the description, both at what is said and what
is not said.  My Thinkpad 770 that I got on ebay came in a factory-sealed
IBM box, exactly as promised.

Re: Used rugged laptops?

I have found used Toughbooks at my hometown's metro government auction site.
I bought a model CF-47 version with no drivers (booted to a C:\), but with
A/C adapter in perfect condition for $325. This was a PIII/20 gig hd/cd-rw,
256meg RAM. I found the drivers at and (Canadian
site is more user-friendly). Set it up, then sold it on eBay.
