In your industry, you may need an ultra-rugged computer that can handle anything the job throws at you. With Panasonic Toughbooks, you can count on their durability and reliability in industries that range from aviation to policing. You might assume that Panasonic Toughbooks are strictly for military use, but there is a wide variety of civilian positions that can benefit from the additional protection and resistance of these computers.

At OC Rugged, we carry some of the most popular Toughbook series and we can help you choose the right Toughbook computer for your work. Learn more about IP ratings and MIL-SPEC certifications for each of the top laptops in our store.

1. Toughbook 31

One of the most durable laptops currently on the market, the Toughbook 31-series comes in a standard option or completely maxed out. The Toughbook 31 MAX has an extra 4GB of RAM as well as an SSD instead of an HDD. If you need a fast computer that reacts at top speed, the MAX may be the right choice for you. Both the standard and MAX series have the same durability features including MIL-STD-810G certification, an Ingress Protection Rating of IP65, and a shock-mounted, quick-release drive. If you work in aviation or firefighting, this is a great choice for a computer for work.

2. Toughbook 53
