Reviews for the Panasonic ToughBook CF-C2

Source: BCW - Business Computing World English
The bottom line here is that for the average notebook user the Toughbook CF-C2 is a non-starter, even if looking for a convertible notebook/tablet PC as more affordable and stylish products are available. Where it comes into its own, however, is in businesses that need to equip staff with a mobile computer for use outside, in warehouses, hospitals and other situations where a standard notebook or tablet would be too flimsy, slow or hard to use.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

3427U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.8 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.9 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
