Panasonic Solutions Company announced a series of upgrades to its Toughbook 19 rugged convertible tablet. The updated device features a standard voltage processor, increased RAM and hard drive capacity as well as speed and a brighter sunlight-viewable screen.
Powered by the second generation Intel Core i5-2520M (2.5GHz) standard voltage processor with Intel HD 3000 graphics, the Toughbook 19’s start-up time is more than 20 percent faster and overall CPU and graphics performance have also been improved compared to the previous model. This is also the first time a standard voltage CPU and Intel HD 3000 graphics have been included in the Toughbook 19. The device still does not require a fan, ensuring reliability in a challenging environment remains a priority. The new device also comes standard with 4GB RAM, expandable to 8GB, and runs a 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7 professional operating system. A 320GB 7200rpm hard drive is standard, with an optional 128 or 256GB solid state drive available.
