There's really just a single name in tough PCs these days, at least on the mainstream front, and that's Toughbook. Panasonic's Toughbook line has been taking beatings in the field for quite a while, and now the Toughbook 19 Convertible Tablet PC is getting a refresh. The unit now ships with Intel's Core i5-3320M vPro processor (up to 3.3GHz), and an innovative ambient light sensor, allowing automatic backlight shut-off to improve battery life. There's also expanded storage -- up to 500GB of 7200RPM space, shock-mounted with a quick release hinge. There's a 10% improvement in battery life (up to 10 hours or so), an added USB 3.0 port, Interlink’s VersaPad for improved touchpad performance and Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR. You'll also get 802.11a/b/g/n, and optional integrated 4G LTE wireless or 3G Gobi wireless, not to mention optional GPS to keep a dot on your location. The 10.1-inch XGA touchscreen TransreflectivePlus display with anti-reflective and anti-glare screen treatments, plus a circular polarizing filter, to keep your view ideal even in sunlight. Of course, this kind of treatment doesn't come cheap; it'll start shipping soon in the U.S. starting at a whopping $3549.

Hmm, no comments. Funny how that works. Stick out tongue

About this laptop. Love the idea, but wouldn't an SSD be better suited for the application? Especially at that price......

At that price they should wax your car every week for a year.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
