you find no reason for their bulkiness?
the only reason these machines can stand water, heat, shock, sand and more is because of all the padding and sealants built into the box. Try doing some of this stuff in the link provided to a normal "thin" notebook.

Regular laptops are often made with fragile plastic or basic aluminum cases. Rugged laptops are made to survive frequent drops/spills. THey are rubber coated, often contain far thicker casing and additional internal protection for components. All this adds up to bulkiness... but at least you dont have to worry about dropping yours.
