So, why should you purchase the Panasonic Toughbook?

There’s a reason it’s called a “tough book”. Panasonic’s Toughbook is among the best semi-rugged laptops on the market, and easily one of the best equipped. Its durability makes it perfect for users who are outdoors, on the move, or need a robust device capable of withstanding extreme altitudes and temperatures, water spills, or 3-foot drops.

Design

Panasonic’s Toughbook’s modular design offers easy accessibility to remove and replace the majority of its essential components if needed. The extendable carrying handle makes it easy to carry. Its durability, state-of-the-art CPU, built-in stylus, and extraordinarily bright display makes this tough laptop flexible and easy to use.

Display

One of the best features of the Panasonic Toughbook is its full HD panel display. Its very bright touch display can withstand in all types of adverse conditions. Although greatly viewable outdoors, you have the option to choose from anti-glare and anti-reflective screen applications.

Processing Power

Each Toughbook provides plenty of power for basic tasks in the field, such as accessing databases or writing reports. One of the best features of the tough laptop is that the storage capacity and memory or both upgradable. Additionally, the hard drive is shock-mounted, which helps protect it from damage if dropped or from other accidents.

Keyboard

For many of the models, the keyboards for these tough laptops have an adjustable backlit with varying levels of brightness. Additionally, some models offer removable keyboards, which transforms the product from a laptop to a fully functioning tablet. Each removable keyboard has levers to lock them in place to prevent accidental detachment. The Premium keyboard provides greater resilience, endurance, versatility, and functionality than its counterpart, the Lite keyboard. They both, however, feature an adjustable strategic backlight and can be attached directly to the Panasonic Toughpads. These rugged tough laptops have pressure-sensitive touchpads that are specially designed to be used with gloved hands or even a stylus. The touchpads and keyboards found on the Panasonic Toughbooks are durable, yet comfortable.

3:2 Aspect Ratio

The Panasonic Toughbook 33 is the first completely rugged product that provides a display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, which is the ratio of the screen’s width to its height. This allows for less vertical scrolling, makes it easier to handle, and provides better viewing of certain applications, including CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) for LEOs (Law Enforcement Officers).

Modules

The majority of the module bays are easily accessible and have quick-release sliding locks. This allows you to remove the module and replace with a new one if necessary.

Waterproof

Are Panasonic Toughbooks waterproof? Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as a waterproof laptop. Although a Panasonic tough book is not waterproof, it is one of the most water-resistant laptops on the market.

Models

Panasonic Toughbooks come in a variety of models, each offering its own reliable, professional grade features and wide range of integrated options. “2-in-1’s” include such products as detachable laptops, 360 display, convertible displays, and laptops. Detachable laptops provide removable keyboards that allows the user to use it as a tablet. This lightweight portable option is the best for those that prefer a laptop and a tablet. A Panasonic tough book has an attached keyboard and a 360 display that folds backwards, converting the laptop into a tablet for versatile use. Convertible displays, on the other hand, also have an attached keyboard, but the display swivels left and right. Laptops include highly rated features, but this is the least versatile of the Panasonic Toughbook models as it can only be opened in a “clamshell” design.

Battery

The battery life for the tough book is up to 20 hours. The battery panels are easily accessible and are “end-user” removable. Models come with the optional second battery and long-life battery. For example, the 14-inch Panasonic Toughbook 55 includes an incomparable 40-hours battery life. Keep in mind that field-based work, mobile broadband, and GPS usage puts more demand on the battery, but the battery life is still excellent.

One of the most impressive features on the models that offer the option of a second battery is that you can replace the depleted battery with a new battery without losing power or interrupting your work progress.

Dock Options

The Panasonic Toughbook and other rugged devices offer a wide variety of vehicle accessory, mounting, and docking options for your personal or professional use. From the desktop dock that uses the Premium keyboard and tablet to the 2-in-1 vehicle dock which also uses the Premium keyboard but can be mounted in either convertible or laptop mode. The bottom docking-slot is compatible with mounts found on police cruisers. The versatility of these docking solutions is as diverse as the needs of the customers that use them.

Webcam

One of the cutting-edge features of the Panasonic Toughbook is the webcam, which provides infared sensors, a privacy door, and 1080p resolution.

Upgrades

Can you upgrade a Panasonic Toughbook? To optimize the memory of your Toughbook, you can upgrade by extending its RAM. Several upgradable options are available.

Audio

Panasonic tough books provide professional grade quality audio, especially suitable for loud environments. For example, the Toughbook 55 includes four microphones to help boost audio clarity.

Toughness

Panasonic’s Toughbook lives up to its name. Compared to other systems, the tough laptop is one of the most advanced and most rugged toughbooks on the market today. For example, the capability to design and integrate the Toughbook 55 with a variety of components gives it a type of stability that’s unlike many other laptops, especially for users looking for a mixture of ruggedness and professional grade features.

The Panasonic Toughbook, in one capacity or another, is fairly common in military and law enforcement usage due to its strength, durability, and longevity in the field. It can often be found in vehicles, easily accessible to the driver.

Overall, the Panasonic tough book’s rugged features, wide range of user-configurable integrated components, long battery life, professional grade features, and ability to meet the unique demands of the user makes it among the most impressive and sought-after laptops on the market today.
