Announcing the Upgraded Toughbook 19 Convertible Tablet

We recently updated our Toughbook 19, a fully-rugged convertible tablet. Important upgrades to our fourth version of this product include optional WiMAX and Gobi2000 chips. The Toughbook 19 is also one of the first mobile solutions to incorporate the newly launched Intel® Core™ i5-540UM processor, featuring Intel® Turbo Boost Technology with speeds up to 2.0GHz, Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel® Virtualization Technology.  Yet it still delivers nine hours of battery life. 

In case you are interested in learning more about the embedded Gobi technology, and reading about one of our customers using it, please take a look at my colleague Vicky Obenshain’s recent blog post on this topic.

One of the fun descriptions of our upgraded notebook comes from Engadget. The post titled, “Panasonic Toughbook 19 gets Core i5 grunt to match its grizzled visage,” notes “It’s mounted in the same bomb-poof magnesium case that we know and love…” To view their entire post, please click here.  (It’s safer, though less exciting, than doing your own explosive testing.)
