Panasonic Toughbook CF-S9


Durability and nearly 10 hours of battery life make the Panasonic Toughbook S9 a solid choice for the most demanding road warriors.

The Panasonic Toughbook S9 offers plenty for business users who demand a design that's light but also highly durable. Despite its light 3-pound weight, this 12-inch machine sports an optical drive plus and is rugged enough to shrug off the rare drop or...

Panasonic Toughbook CF-31


An update to Panasonic's fully rugged notebook features strong performance protected by a stronger case.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 may look like the lunchbox from hell, but its hard metallic case does an excellent job of protecting its contents from all comers. $3,799 is a lot of money to drop on a fully rugged notebook, but the price typically...

Panasonic ToughBook S9


This business-rugged ultraportable has all the trademark ToughBook durability without sacrificing portability, but the high price (and relatively light performance) make it strictly a tool for executive road warriors.

Spill-resistant deck; chassis is light yet durable; military drop rating; long battery life; supports Gobi 3G broadband; top-loading optical drive

Hefty price; limited performance, considering cost; poor audio; condensed keyboard

We tested the Panasonic ToughBook S9 more thoroughly than just about any other business ultraportable, largely because of its tall and impressive durability claims. The ToughBook S9's light weight, included optical drive, and proven durability justify...

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.

Extremely good performance, fully mil-spec rugged

USB port still too recessed for use with some peripherals

Toughbook 31


The Panasonic Toughbook 31 is a great off-the-shelf product to look into when you need a rugged notebook, especially if you don't necessarily need all of the individual customization options a smaller manufacturer may specialize in. However, it is...

The Panasonic Toughbook 31 comes with a touchscreen display

There are a limited number of options for applications directly from the website

This product has a lot of configurations but not many customization options.

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

Could it be thinner

Consumer review by:

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

Consumer review by:
