Panasonic’s Rugged Toughbook 20 Gets Hot-Swappable Batteries

It's not the most beautiful looking laptop in the world. If you need a computer that can survive the dangers of the field though, it's not easy to find anything more suitable to work with than the Panasonic Toughbook 20.

Panasonic’s Rugged Toughbook 20 Gets Hot-Swappable Batteries

Hybrid notebook and tablet, the device comes in a sturdy shell that must live in the toughest outdoor conditions. This means, IP65 waterproofing, a durable build that can withstand four-foot drops, and mil-STD-461F certification for enduring electromagnetic interference. From retail and manufacturing to transport and military uses, this productivity machine carries all the rugged qualities necessary to get the job done whether you're in a busy warehouse, in a dusty job site, or in the middle of nowhere.
Like its predecessor, in 2018, Panasonic toughbook 20 is a reliable laptop with a 10.1-inch IPS display, which can physically disconnect from the keyboard to function as a solid tablet, complete with an integrated handle for convenient use while driving, doubling as a functional stand. The display is sunlight-clean, making it ideal for use in the field, all the time responding to a touch interaction with or without gloves. The screen, by the way, comes along with a new tablet that allows you to perform precise stylus work on top of multi-touch screen support, making the screen better suited for writing signatures, notes, and other traditional pens and paper assignments.
The biggest improvement in this iteration is the introduction of the "battery bridge" system, which allows users to hot-swap batteries on the fly,which allows you to significantly extend your computer's running time. With each battery able to keep it running for up to 8.5 hours of continuous use, a few charged modules on your bag should let you work on the road for days at the end without access to the power outlet.
Panasonic Toughbook 20 is equipped with a seventh generation Intel Core i5 processor, integrated Intel graphics, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of SSD drive, complete with OPAL encryption, so it must be a fully capable desktop computer, whether in laptop or tablet mode. There is also an infrared webcam to complement the standard 1080p webcam, opening it up to an even wider range of applications in the field, along with an 8 megapixel rear camera for taking quick photographs. To make sure it handles a wide range of applications, there are options to enable SAS smart card reader, fingerprint reader, magnetic stripe reader and barcode reader.
Since computers like these will accept a variety of accessories, it comes with connectors for USB 3.0, HDMI output, Ethernet port, 3.5 mm audio, microSD and SIM, and a nine-pin serial port only on the tablet partition only, using the keyboard part to receive slots for two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0, HDMI, VGA cable, Ethernet, SD card, and nine-pin serial. Features include built-in speaker, dual microphone 82-key keyboard with built-in lighting and the body is made of magnesium alloy encased in ABS and rubber edges.
Pricing for Panasonic toughbook from 20 starts at $ 3,100.
