Klingenthal/Germany: 4° and continuous rain
During the team’s preparation for the World Cup season, Toughbook computers are exposed to a typical German winter. It’s cold, wet and raining constantly – but the computers run reliably. When training’s finished, they’re turned upside down to dry off.
The temperatures are frosty when the World Cup season gets underway. Under these conditions it takes a little longer than usual for the computers to boot, but the batteries keep running throughout the competition. “5 hours at -18° – that’s just great,” sums up co-trainer Christian Winkler.
Kuopio/Finland: -15° and icy drizzle
The co-trainer is also enthusiastic about the Toughbook computers’ reliability under icy conditions at the second World Cup meeting: “A film of ice on the PC, but it keeps working brilliantly!!!”
