Panasonic Toughbook 19

 

This 10-inch rugged tablet offers field-workers epic battery life and a bright display, although the keyboard might be too cramped for some users.

As a fully rugged 10-inch notebook, the Panasonic Toughbook 19 occupies a class all its own. If you want a military-grade notebook that will last the whole day and won't break your back—and you have the room in your budget—the Toughbook 19 is an...

This durable notebook begs for abuse.

Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Panasonic Toughbook CF-19MK3 notebook

 

Panasonic's latest Toughbook is as big as a netbook and as strong as an ox

Small, built like a tank, tablet-convertible; useful for covert ops, recon missions

Tough features come at a high cost, embedded 3G modem is not standard, doesn't use a solid-state drive

It's a hefty investment, but if you work in a field that's tough on regular laptops — and you've already gone through thousands of dollars worth of dead laptops as a result — the Panasonic Toughbook CF-19MK3 might be a worthwhile proposition.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 (2012)

 

A powerful, fully rugged convertible laptop/tablet that can survive almost anything.

Tough as nails ; Incredibly versatile ; Excellent connectivity ; Powerful ‘laptop’ specs ; Superb battery life

Low screen res and terrible viewing angles ; Weighty and chunky ; Expensive

Throughout it all the CF-19 just kept on working – no drying time, no down-time, no interruption in the workflow. It’s not like we needed confirmation that this rugged laptop is as tough as its name implies, but it’s good to see that it’s still as...

Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 review

 

The covers protect the inside of the laptop from dust and water ingress and the screen, touchpad and keyboard are also all water resistant. You can't completely submerge the Toughbook CF-19 and expect it to re-surface unaffected by water, but you can...
