Panasonic Toughbook 31
There’s no shortage of high spec, stylishly designed laptops on the market, but for individuals engaged in a particularly rough or outdoor lifestyle a laptop bred for more extreme physical conditions may be required. Enter the Panasonic Toughbook 31 which has durability written into its DNA.
This hardy beast comes encased in magnesium alloy – a material commonly used in the aerospace and automotive applications due its light weight, toughness and corrosion resistance. In earning its place within Panasonic’s fully-rugged range, the Toughbook 31 has been drop-shock tested to levels required for MIL-STD-810G certification; a demanding set of tests which also include temperature resistance, liquid resistance, particle resistance and ability to withstand electromagnetic interference (EMI) and are incorporated into the company’s exhaustive quality check-list.
Beneath this armored exterior lies a system with a respectable specification, including a 2.5GHz i5 processor, 4GB RAM, and a 320GB shock-mounted Hard Drive. A 13.1” Touchscreen LCD display and integrated webcam also mean the laptop comes with features which might be more commonly associated with office-based computers.
Combine the Toughbook 31 with a secure Operating System which is kept up-to-date, and the result should be a computer that’s as well insulated against the elements as it is against virtual threats.
