The 20-inch rugged tablet will now feature Intel's Core i5 vPro CPU of the Broadwell generation. Additionally, the device has received a massive price cut.

As its name implies, Panasonic's Toughpad 4K tablet is a rugged 20 inch tablet featuring an impressive 4K display that was first introduced in 2013. Today, Panasonic has updated the professional tablet with latest generation Intel Core i5 vPro processors, and has also added a HDMI 2.0 port. The tablet is designed for professional creative and technical fields, such as video editing and architecture design.

The Toughpad's 20-inch IPS display features a resolution of 3,840 x 2560 pixels, which is slightly taller compared to the Ultra HD standard. It has a display density of 230 pixels-per-inch, and a 15:10 aspect ratio. Connectivity wise, the tablet supports USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, and Intel-powered 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi. Gigabit Ethernet, mini-DisplayPort, and HDMI 2.0 ports are also included.

The tablet is rugged and can handle a 30-inch (50 cm) drop to its back. It is also able to operate in extreme environments, being reinforced with a magnesium alloy frame. Panasonic will also offer a desktop cradle (which opens up to a tilted stand) that will allow the Toughpad to be used as a main desktop PC, and there will also be a VESA mounting plate.

For all these capabilities, the Toughpad 4K will start at $2999, which is considerably less than the previous generation's massive $5999. It will be available for purchase from authorized Panasonic retailers.
