Toughbook 31 has the brains to go with the brawn


The GCN Lab kicks the tires on the new Panasonic Toughbook 31 and finds a fully rugged laptop PC with the power of a good desktop.

Best professional laptop


I set this up for my client for over 6 months and he tells me this is the best thing he has used. He travels all over and needs a professional solution and this is it

Lives up to it's name!


This thing can take a serious beating! I spent about 15 minutes beating my wife until I finally looked over and realized I was hitting her with this and not even a scratch

Bloody but that isn't Panasonic's fault
