The Panasonic Toughbook is one of the most successful lines of niche computers for business and military use thanks to intelligent design, ample power and superior protection. There are many different models of Panasonic Toughbook available, divided into several classes to meet the needs of their intended users.
A business-rugged classification Panasonic Toughbook, for instance, packs in dozens of durability features to prevent business users from damaging laptops unintentionally while traveling or when doing light field work. However, business rugged models aren't as heavy as some other models, and by cutting down on certain features, they ensure dependability without becoming unrealistic for everyday use. A business-type Panasonic Toughbook like the Toughbook F9 can weigh as little as 3.9 pounds and includes the features that business users have come to expect in a laptop, along with added drop and spill resistance. Ultra-mobile rugged Toughbooks offer a step up from the business models in terms of protection, but are still lightweight enough to be used by casual computer users on a regular basis.
Other types of Toughbook are even more durable and dependable. A semi-rugged Panasonic Toughbook has more damage protection, including a shock-mounted hard drive to prevent data loss due to a sudden jar to a hard drive's read/write heads during a heavier-than-average physical drop or hit. Semi-rugged Panasonic Toughbook models include the Panasonic Toughbook 52, which is 3G ready--mobile Internet access is included in most semi-rugged models, and as such, they're particularly great buys for field work. Semi-rugged Panasonic Toughbook models are often built for speed as well, with Intel Core Duo processors.
Military use and extreme field work requires a fully-rugged computer. Fully-rugged Panasonic Toughbook models are built for extreme conditions. Models like the Toughbook 31 have an all-weather design, with screens that are readable in direct sunlight and fully-sealed keyboards for clean operation, even in rain, dust storms and other serious conditions. These Toughbooks are built to meet required government standards and are among the most dependable computers available.
With dozens of incredible rugged designs, the Panasonic Toughbook is an outstanding line of computers for any user who needs absolute dependability combined with power and modern features. They're the ultimate option for field work and for keeping productivity up in any conditions, whether a user simply needs to travel frequently with a computer or operate it in more severe circumstances.
