hehe ive done some oilfield work myself, and Ive seen people use that in the oilfield, so it would definetly be a plus. The downside is, while it is a dual core, at 1.8 ghz, it is an older one. Its still decently fast-4 gigs of ram, should handle most general applications just fine. The downside is its not going to perform along the same lines as a brand new HP, dell or other name brand manufacturer-as they come with newer technology such as more ram, quad cores etc. But that being said, depending on what your using it for, may not be an issue-if your doing Auto CAD you may want to save your money and purchase a higher end toughbook, but if your just wanting it to check your email and watch movies while out in the field thats a good laptop and a fair price for it.
