The reason the Latitude 2100 is thicker and heavier than a regular netbook is its ruggedised case. It is constructed from stiffened plastic (polycarbonate/acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or PC ABS), and it feels very solid, especially when you type on it. It has a rubberised lid and base to prevent it from slipping out of students' hands. Despite the rubber-like coating (a material called elastomer), we still managed to drop it. It landed on its right-hand edge onto carpet after falling from about 1.5m, but it wasn't running at the time so it survived.
