Reviews for the Panasonic Toughbook CF-T5

67% Panasonic Toughbook CF-T5
Source: PC Pro English
Panasonic's ultraportable, semi-rugged Toughbooks may be small and light enough to be stuffed into an overnight bag, but they're no lightweights when it comes to robustness. The specially contoured lid can handle up to 100kg of pressure before the screen is threatened. And Panasonic claims the CF-T5 can withstand drops of up to 30cm on to a hard surface, without damage. Unlike fully rugged Toughbooks, they're attractive enough to avoid curious glances too. Your only choice if you need a tough, rather than fully rugged, ultraportable notebook.

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.

1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
