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

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 can be dropped, kicked, splashed with water and exposed to dust, and it'll love it!

Water resistant ; 180cm drop rating ; Dustproof

Small ; Uncomfortable to use ; Expensive

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 feels every bit as tough as it. It's rugged features allow it to withstand the elements and clumsiness. It's well suited for field assignments and factory floors, and basically useful to any professional that has to work...

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-19MK3 is a fully ruggedised tablet-convertible laptop with a 10.4in screen. It's aimed at professionals who work in factori...

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...

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...

Panasonic updates its lighweight fully rugged ToughBook with a dual core CPU.

Because fully rugged ToughBooks are built to be used in extreme environments, pointer movement can be something of an issue. It's hard to use a touchpad when it's covered in mud or dust, so Panasonic has equipped the CF-19 with a touch screen instead....

We've got a literal tough test on our hands this week, and first up is the Panasonic ToughBook CF-19 laptop. Costing a pricey £2,749, can it survive a coffee spill and then a soaking by a fire brigade hose? Find out in the video above! Panasonic...
