The Panasonic Toughbook range has long been the poster child for rugged laptops and the CF-19 is another impressive model. Unless you regularly work outside or in hostile conditions, you won't need a Toughbook and Panasonic confirms that this model isn't intended for consumer use. But for the engineers and adventurers among you, it's got some great features that make it an obvious choice.

Overall, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 is perhaps a little too small to be practical. Its keys are small and the keyboard cramped overall, and its touchpad can be tiring to use. It could perhaps use an 11.6in or 12.1in form factor, which would make it a little more comfortable. Or, you could opt for the CF-31, which has a 13.1in screen, although it lacks the ability to be converted into a tablet.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 feels every bit as tough as it. It's rugged features allow it to withstand the elements and clumsiness. It's well suited for field assignments and factory floors, and basically useful to any professional that has to work outdoors.

72%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
