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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

81.95%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
