As enthusiasts, we often spend a lot of time making sure that our computing environment is ideal. We make sure the room temperature is kept colder than necessary, so our computer components are healthier, and we spend hours managing our cables so air flow is optimal. The idea of operating our systems in places with a lot of dust and heat is simply unimaginable, although that is exactly the kind of computing environment that some scientists or military personnel operate in.
Imagine the computing conditions in a desert, where soldiers are carrying out their missions and scientists are doing their field tests on dig sites. That is why they often use equipment specialized to take a lot of abuse and are very rugged. This equipment is usually heavier and made of very strong steel. Of course, if it's tough enough for them, it should be more than enough for personal use, as well.
