This new Toughbook detachable hybrid is the first in its category with a 3:2 aspect ratio display and, just like its predecessors, targets professionals that have to face tough work conditions.

Panasonic's Toughbook lineup has been around since 1996, and now a new such rugged device comes to spice up things a bit. According to its makers, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is "the world’s first 3:2 aspect ratio, fully rugged 2-in-1 detachable laptop."

The specs and features of the Windows 10 Pro-driven Toughbook CF-33 include the Intel Core i5-7300U processor, 8 GB RAM (with 4 GB and 16 GB options also planned), and 256 GB SSD storage (128 GB and 512 GB variants are also expected to be available). The display has 2,160X1,440 pixels, while the included cameras offer 2 MP (front) and 8 MP (back).

This convertible comes with a multi-functional dock and has been tested to comply with the IP65 standard. The Toughbook CF-33 uses a magnesium chassis, weighing around 6 pounds in laptop mode, while the detachable tablet weighs less than 3.4 pounds.

The Toughbook CF-33 convertible will be available for purchase in the second quarter of 2017 in Europe. Pricing and availability for the US have not been announced yet. For more details, please check the press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
