Armored laptop - low budget

How do you recommend an armored laptop for auto machanist workshop? I have one candidate for now, and for the sake of a small budget it is a post-lease Panasonic Toughbook cf-54 laptop. I do not care about perfect appearance, so even a little damaged on the casing can be.
But I want another proposal with which I could compare this model

Keep in mind ruggedized laptops generally are slower, (because of heating) and older and cost more.

I really wouldn’t buy one unless you think there’s significant risk of it being damaged, which generally only happens if it gets moved around a lot.
