Today on the OC Rugged Laptops Blog, we are looking at the differences between the CF-19 Toughbook and the CF-19 Core i5 Toughbook.

What Is the CF-19 Panasonic Toughbook?

The CF-19 Series was one of Panasonic’s earliest “fully rugged” Toughbook designs, meaning it was built to military-grade specifications. All CF-19 models provide excellent durability and:

  • Protection from elements like heat, humidity, and vibration
  • Protection from spills, salt penetration, and rain or snow
  • Protection from being dropped or roughly handled
  • Protection from sudden pressure changes or explosions

Toughbooks are great for use in the field, at factories and other working facilities, and in vehicles!

All CF-19 Panasonic Toughbooks function either as a laptop or as a tablet. The screen swivels for your convenience, and to use the tablet mode simply fold the screen all the way down.
