Reviews for the Panasonic Toughbook CF-54MK1
Panasonic labels this Toughbook as a “semi-rugged” laptop and that’s a fair description of what enterprise and government clients can expect. Despite the MIL-STD-810G certification and spill-resistant keyboard, you may find the CF-54 isn’t ideal for deployment in environments that are prone to excessive moisture ore frequent exposure to fine dirt and sand. The optical drive and power jack aren’t fully sealed and the keyboard won’t play nice in extremely messy locations.
