Panasonic Revamp See Upgrade in Tough Notebook

  • Increased battery life
  • Ultra bright screen
  • 2GB of Ram upgradable to 8GB

Panasonic has launched a revamped Toughbook CF-19, which features the new Intel Core i5 Processor, a claimed increase in battery life of up to nine hours, and an ultra-bright 1,000 nit screen.

Purpose-built for extreme conditions, the new CF-19 also incorporates improved ruggedisation, having moved from MIL-STD-810F to MIL-STD-810G and IP54 to IP65.

The CF-19 has a screen brightness of 1000 nit, with a circular polarising touch screen and anti-reflection coating to make it easier to read under direct sunlight – ideal for outdoor use. 

Built rugged, the Toughbook CF-19 has a magnesium alloy frameand specialised shock-absorbent damper encasing the hard drive. The unit can withstand knocks, heavy vibrations and sharp temperature fluctuations, as well as survive falls from up to 1.8 metres.  The CF-19 screen rotates 180 degrees and converts to tablet form. Simply by pressing the screen rotation button, the screen display is turned four ways.

The CF-19 features Convert Conceal mode, so that with the touch of a button, the screen display disappears immediately to protect information from being read by unauthorised persons.

Incorporating the new Intel Core i5 Processor, the CF-19 offers improved manageability, tightened security and faster performance.

With enhanced security features, the CF-19 features the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip which prevents unauthorised access, theft or loss of the HDD, while the optional fingerprint reader and/or smart card reader reduces the risk of insecure passwords.  They also feature a cable lock slot to physically secure the unit.
