The laptops are tested “to the strictest MIL-STD-810H US military-grade standard.” I know. They do not look like they are tough but they are. But they may survive drops and such but do not expect them to get away without any cosmetic damages. Just saying…

It is unclear when the AMD-powered ASUS Vivobook Classic Series will be available or how much the laptops will cost.
