Reviews for the Panasonic Toughbook CF-Y5

75% Panasonic CF-Y5 Toughbook laptop
Source: Reg Hardware English
With an improved display, a dual-core processor and its all-round ruggedness, we took to this Toughbook even more than the earlier CF-W5 model. However, £1,649 for a laptop with a Core Duo L2400 and just 512MB RAM is enough to deter a few that were once-interested in investing in this product. An integrated 3G HSDPA slot for mobile broadband can be added, but then that complete set-up will set you back £1,949. If it were a little less expensive and had a bit more RAM, Panasonic would have a prizewinner.

The CF-Y5's plus points - excellent battery life, rugged design and light weight - can't be ignored. If you've broken laptops before because of clumsy travel habits or an unusually violent commute, the CF-Y5 is certainly worth considering. There are better-value alternatives, but the CF-Y5 is superbly built, very light and boasts an excellent keyboard.

The Toughbook CF-Y5 is Panasonic's latest foray into the corporate rugged-laptop market where businesses might not mind paying a little bit more for something that will last. One of the first things we noticed was its weight. Including the power supply the notebook weighs just 1.95kg, which is superb for a 14.1in LCD based laptop with an inbuilt DVD writer.

So, the ToughBook CF-Y5 is expensive, but it’s also one of the best all round notebooks I’ve ever used. To create something this robust, with a great screen, class leading battery life and a weight more akin to 12.1in ultra-portable machines is an achievement that Panasonic should be very proud of.

I poured water on a laptop. Then I dropped it. On purpose. The water in question was poured into the keyboard of a Panasonic CF-Y5 ($2,800) laptop loaned to me by the company. The fall on to a hardwood floor ended in the kind of crashing thud that strikes fear into the heart of any laptop lover.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
