The New Toughbook 20 – The World’s First Fully-Rugged 2-in-1 is Better Than Ever

Since it was first launched in 2016, the Panasonic Toughbook 20 has proven itself a vital tool for many of today’s most challenging jobs. From delivering vital information to police, fire and other first responders, to helping utility companies maintain critical services, to helping members of the US Air Force support missions around the globe, the world’s first fully-rugged 2-in-1 laptop has cemented itself as a the solution for reliable, rugged mobility in today’s ever-evolving workplace.

And now, the Toughbook 20 is even better, with new standard features, increased performance and longer battery life.

But, you don’t have to take our word for it – just take a look at some of what’s being said about the new and improved Toughbook 20:

  • “Panasonic’s updated Toughbook 20 will put your laptop’s battery to shame.” – The Verge
  • “When it comes to rugged, the Toughbook 20 is head of the class. It’s one thing to claim that products meet MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certifications. Panasonic delivers the goods on ruggedness. Rather than settling for a passing grade on some specification requirements, the company makes sure they’re passed rigorously. For example, a claim of passing water ingress, shock, and vibration might be true but only narrowly so. Another firm might run these tests in sequence, each on a fresh machine. Panasonic runs them all at once on the same machine, pushing its systems past their limits so its customers don’t have to discover them.” – Roger Kay, Endpoint Technologies
  • “For many years, Panasonic has been producing its “Toughbook” line of computers for the blue-collar workers that make the world turn. The company’s machines can take a beating, making them ideal for first responders, construction workers, the military, and more. While they may cost a bit more up front, they can pay for themselves over time as they survive when other computers will have already died. Today, the company refreshes its famed 10.1-inch “Toughbook 20” 2-in-1 Windows 10 detachable laptop/tablet with a new 8mp rear camera, a bridge battery, plus updated processor and storage options.” – BetaNews
  • “Durable and long-lasting. Those might be the two traits that many users probably wished their laptops had. Sadly, those two seem to also be antithetical to the trend of laptop design. Not unless your laptop is the new Panasonic Toughbook CF-20 Mark 2. Sounding like something straight off a sci-fi world, the company’s latest rugged mobile computer steps up from its predecessor in more ways than one, including whopping 17-hour battery life laptop users would kill to have.” – Slashgear
