70% Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 review
Source: APC Mag English
Panasonic's armadillo-like Toughbook is water-proof, shock-proof and dust-proof. With the exception of the odd keyboard and recessed USB 2.0 ports, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 is a proud example of how to take a good notebook and make it almost impervious to damage. It’s enormously expensive, but that’s the price you have to pay to get a portable computer that can’t readily be broken.

Panasonic: Panasonic Corporation, formerly known as Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., is a multinational corporation based in Japan. Its main business is in electronics manufacturing and produces products under a variety of names including Panasonic and Technics. Since its founding in 1918, it grew to become the largest Japanese electronics producer. In addition to electronics, Panasonic offers non-electronic products and services such as home renovation services. Panasonic is an international notebook manufacturer, but with rather small market shares and few laptop reviews. Panasonic concentrates its notebook sortiment primarily to the niche of ruggedized notebooks, which are made for rough outdoor usage.

Panasonic reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

SU9300: Power efficient low voltage processor based on the Penryn 3M core that features all Penryn functions like Virtualization and Trusted Execution.

Intel Core i5:

2520M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


10.1: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions.

10.4: The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks.

Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility.

2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.3 kg:


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
