Laptops that can have their screen detached to act as a tablet aren’t new. However for the most part, most OEMs who create such devices tend to market their product as being thin, sleek, and sporting a pretty nice design. However what if you wanted a similar setup, but you’re working in an industry in which you would prefer durability, not aesthetics?
If that describes you, you’re in luck as Panasonic has recently announced the Toughbook 20. This is Panasonic’s latest flagship rugged laptop, and according to the company it would also make it the world’s first fully rugged detachable laptop, which the company claims has been designed to meet MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, and IP65 standards.
For those unfamiliar with those ratings and certifications, it means that it can withstand electromagnetic interference, drops, shocks, vibrations, water, humidity, sand, extreme temperatures, and so on. As for its non-rugged specs, the computer will come with an Intel Core M5-6Y57 vPro processor with Windows 10 Pro preinstalled.
It also packs a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 touchscreen display with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of SSD storage, the ability to hot swap batteries, which for those wondering is of the 2,600mAh battery. The Panasonic Toughbook 20 is definitely not aimed at the average user and is expected to be released come February 2016 where it will be priced starting at $3,099.
