Panasonic has today announced a new version of its Toughbook SX2,
which has now been slimmed down but is still hard enough to withstand
knocks and bumps.
Panasonic have equipped their new SX2 Toughbook with an Intel Core
i5-3320M vPro processor 3MB cache, up to 3.3GHz with Intel Turbo Boost
Technology, together with a 12.1 inch LED backlit screen encased in a magnesium alloy body.
The new Panasonic Toughbook SX2 has also been equipped with a high-powered battery that is capable of providing 14.5 hours of use, 720p web camera, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, and includes connectivity for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
"Technology enables many professionals today to work from
virtually anywhere, but this freedom creates a new set of issues when
users are not equipped with the right tools for the job – device
failures mean frustration, lost productivity and revenue, plus
substantial repair and replacement costs,” said Kyp Walls, director of
product management, Panasonic Solutions for Business. "Like the other
computers in our renowned Toughbook line, the Toughbook SX2 is
engineered to provide the reliability high value professionals require
with the portability they desire.”
The new Panasonic Toughbook will be arriving in stores later this
month for around $2,649, and its lid and base have been designed to
withstand more than 220 lbs (100 kgf) of pressure. For more information
