Panasonic has announced an up to date edition of the company’s lesser 10.1-inch variety issue Toughbook, the CF-twenty Mark two.
Like the initial CF-twenty, the Mark two characteristics a 10.1-inch display screen in a rugged, two-in-1 convertible tablet variety issue — imagine of it as a lesser, much more moveable edition of the twelve-inch Toughbook 33 that the enterprise announced final year.
New on the Mark two product are some much more modern-day characteristics, like a Home windows Hi there-enabled entrance digital camera (with both visual and IR sensors), keyboard keys that are eight per cent larger sized, an improved digital camera, and an extended 17-hour approximated battery lifetime many thanks to a second battery that now comes regular in the keyboard half of the laptop. Its predecessor was rated for 10 hours of battery lifetime in tablet mode.
The specs aren’t fairly as remarkable as those people on its larger counterpart, with the CF-twenty kitted out with a seventh-technology Intel Main i5-7Y57 vPro processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. And the 10.1-inch display screen is only 1920 x 1200 pixels, though the touchscreen does get the job done with gloves on, in contrast to most shopper options. Also offered is optional 4G LTE connectivity, which makes perception provided that most of these versions are designed to be utilised out in the subject by law enforcement, firefighter, building, and armed service buyers.
Like Panasonic’s other Toughbook versions, the CF-twenty is rated for armed service quality MIL-STD-810G specification (which tests “drop, shock, vibration, rain, dust, sand, altitude, freeze/thaw, higher/lower temperature, temperature shock, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, [and] explosive ambiance.”) and is IP65 licensed versus dust and h2o.
Sadly, the Toughbook twenty isn’t remaining offered direct to consumers — you are going to have to pick it up from authorized Panasonic resellers. And the rugged style does not come low-priced, either, with versions commencing at $three,099 — but if you are anyone who is seriously concerned about breaking your laptop computer, it could possibly be well worth the additional cash.
