Panasonic Launches Three New Business Toughbooks
Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1 tablet PC
Dubbed as the world’s lightest 12.1-inch convertible tablet PC, the CF-C1 smashes all perceptions that tablet PCs have to be brittle and flimsily built. In addition to the established ruggedness and robustness of its Toughbook brand heritage, the CF-C1 is also capable of delivering up to 10 hours of battery life in a single charge, and is powered by an Intel Core i5-520M processor with vPro technology.
Furthermore, the CF-C1’s screen also supports both multi-touch and digitizers, which allows for greater flexibility in touch screen input recognition. Last but not least, the tablet features a unique triple-hinge design: two hinges are set aside purely for opening and closing the screen, while the third hinge is exclusively for rotating the screen into tablet mode.
Panasonic Toughbook CF-F9
Touted as the industry’s lightest 14-inch notebook, Panasonic’s latest business-rugged laptop, the Toughbook CF-F9 weighs a mere 1.6kg. In addition, providing the notebook’s processing power is an Intel Core i5 processor, 320 GB HDD, while a high resolution (1440 x 990) widescreen display with LED backlighting and an integrated handle solve most busy professionals’ mobile needs.
The CF-F9 also comes with a strong magnesium alloy case and chassis, shock-mounted flex-connect hard drive and LCD, and spill-resistant design to ensure that the laptop is able to withstand the rigour of the toughest business conditions.
Panasonic Toughbook CF-S9
Designed and built for the busy business executive, the Toughbook CF-S9 is the world’s lightest 12-inch laptop, weighing a mere 1.37kg. It is compact and can be carried around with ease, while retaining the legendary “toughness” for maximum defense against downtime. Featuring Intel’s Core i5- 520M vPro processor, (2.40GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz, Intel Smart Cache 3MB), 2GB DDR3 SD-RAM and 320 GB HDD, the Toughbook CF-S9 can run for up to 11 hours on a single charge.
