So we have a winner! A laptop with an Intel chipset and Renesas 

I remember you said you want to choose a rather new notebook. 

We'd have to check what Panasonic CF-18, CF-28 and CF-29 use, as these 
are the newest rugged Toughbooks, and might be a great choice if they 
still use Renesas controllers.

Here I have a list of all toughbook models I could spot:

Althrough I cannot afford anything newer than CF-27 out of that list, 
so I would have to wait several years to use your LinuxBIOS.

I bought it because I damage most standard notebooks quickly, and 
cellphones too. I use Nokia 6250 rugged cellphone, after about 7 other 
cellphones didn't live more than several months in my hands.
