Reviews for the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-55 MK2

83.9% Panasonic Toughbook FZ-55 MK2 rugged laptop review: Iris Xe makes all the difference | Notebookcheck
The 2021 Toughbook FZ-55 MK2 is an excellent example of how far Intel has come since its Whiskey Lake-U days on the original 2019 Toughbook FZ-55 MK1. If you want to maximize performance without necessarily drawing more power, then the FZ-55 Mark 2 is a no-brainer.

The Toughbook 55 is a semi-rugged laptop, a term that Panasonic itself uses to denote a machine that will withstand the stresses of a first responder’s daily routine, though can’t be submerged in water or used in a dust storm. Freed from the need to meet the ultimate rugged certifications, the Toughbook 55 instead sports a relatively compact chassis and oodles of customization options. For many buyers the similar Getac B360 will be a better choice, since it’s roughly the same size and has slightly better rugged certifications. The B360 therefore retains our Editors’ Choice award. For organizations who already have Toughbook infrastructure like vehicle docks and who are able to negotiate favorable pricing with Panasonic, though, the Toughbook 55 could be a better choice. Add in easily swappable components (like a barcode reader) that many other rugged machines don’t offer, and you’ve got an excellent semi-rugged laptop.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.


81.95%: 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.
