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.

From 2013-2016, Panasonic has primarily offered tablets and, to a lesser extent, also smartphones. However, there are only few smartphone reviews.

83.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
