The six new Toughbooks include the world’s lightest 12.1-inch convertible tablet PC, a mobile clinical assistant, a rugged handheld tablet computer, a small and light handheld, a rugged notebook with powerful specifications, and a rugged tablet designed for ‘extreme conditions.’ The new range features enhanced ergonomics, an Intel i5 processor, extended battery life, and a magnesium alloy chassis.

Panasonic Australia’s Group Manager for Toughbook, Mark Wallis said that the new range offers affordable ruggedisation that protects organisations against the cost of damage to their notebook fleet.

“Toughbook has a strong heritage in rugged technology and we are very excited to be drawing on our expertise to develop durable, smart and easy-to-use Toughbooks for the increasing number of Australian workers who demand an ultra-portable and reliable computing solution,” he said.

“Toughbook is no longer just for the military or heavy industry – in fact, more than 50 percent of our current rugged notebook sales are to non-heavy industries. Today, the Panasonic Toughbook is a realistic and attractive option to even more businesses as we have seen a steady reduction in pricing over time – most importantly without compromising on quality or performance.”

“Panasonic is proud to offer state-of-the-art mobile computing solutions that are built for real working environments, whether that be a hospital ward, regional office or mobile sales,” Mr Wallis said.
