Let me introduce you to the most famous rugged laptop, the Panasonic Toughbook. These have earned the moniker of the ‘worlds toughest laptop’ after being introduced into service almost 20years ago. Panasonic realised then that the world needed a tough laptop.
Panasonic’s build quality is legendary and they were in fact the first company to introduce a laptop that had a build in CD Drive back in 1994. Throughout the world some of the most demanding professions use a Toughbook. Their speciality is making a laptop which is waterproof, dust proof and you can even drop it. In fact you could drive your car over some of the fully rugged models.
There are different types or versions of Toughbooks available to buy. They range from tablets to notebooks to fully rugged laptops.
The fully ruggedised versions are able to withstand water, dust and drops. Their hard drives are surrounded by a secure gel and foam enclosure to absorb any impact forces and to ensure that your data is not corrupted. Checkout the range of refurbished Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 that we sell which are fully rugged. These laptops are used by military forces across the world, which can survive drops from up to 6ft.
These laptops can be used in conditions ranging from freezing cold to the hottest deserts with scorching heat and dust to even the wet tropics and jungles where they are used by logging companies and miners. The operating temperature ranges from +60 degrees celcius to -51 degrees celcius freezing. You can find more detailed information here
