Reviews for the Panasonic Toughbook CF-S10

70% Panasonic Toughbook CF-S10
Source: PC Mag English
The Panasonic Toughbook CF-S10 is a solid machine when it comes to handling day-to-day office tasks and it'll keep your data secure for years to come. However, if performance is your main concern over security, then you should definitely consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X220—$1,150 less than the Toughbook CF-S10—and combine it with something like a WiebeTech ToughTech Secure Q hard drive to back up your data. If performance and security are of equal concern, the Dell Latitude E6420-ATG will give you a faster Core i7 processor with the rugged business look, but it'll cost you $899 more.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display 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, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
