Panasonic announced earlier today a major update to the notorious Toughbook 31 rugged laptop. The company's bestseller now packs a new processor, increased autonomy, "as well as improved connectivity and significant performance boosts over the previous model." Panasonic Toughbook 31 has a fully sealed design that meets both the IP65 and MIL-STD-810G standards.
These are the main updated specs of the Panasonic Toughbook 31:
- Processor: Intel Core i5-5300U vPro with HD Graphics 5500
- Display: 13.1-inch sunlight-viewable touchscreen
- Connectivity: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac)
- Operating system: Windows 8.1 Pro Update 64-bit or Windows 7 Professional (available through downgrade rights from Windows 8.1 Pro)
This portable also features a magnesium alloy case, reinforced locking port covers, as well as a quick-release hard drive that comes with a heater for operation in cold weather. It has been tested by a third party and proven able to handle a 6-feet drop and pass no less than 19 MIL-STD-810G tests.
The updated Panasonic Toughbook 31 will hit the market next month via authorized Panasonic resellers starting around $3,699 USD.
