The CF-31 is a no-nonsense piece of military hardware. Its bulky 11.9" x 2.9 x 11.1" magnesium-alloy case weighs in at a formidable 8.2 lbs, and looks far more like a ruggedized gun case than a laptop. With an extremely comfortable and rugged pull-out carry handle, the CF-31 is not a laptop you'd ever need a separate carry case for. You just pick it up and go, rain or shine, dust or snow.
The case is IP65 rated, meaning it's entirely dust-tight and resistant to direct jets of water from any angle. It's also MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F certified, and is shock-resistant as tested by a 4ft drop.
All the ports are protected beneath individual plastic covers with rubber seals, as is the DVD drive bay (which, for the record, can be fitted instead with an auxiliary battery to give extended hours of continuous use).
The Panasonic Toughbook 31 comes from a family of Fully Rugged laptops designed for use in harsh environments and extreme weather conditions.
For people who frequently work away from a desk, standard laptops won't suffice. A communication company's field technicians, supervisors, engineers, sailors, miners, builders and travelers have different needs for durability, portability, operating time, outdoor viewability and security.
This Windows-Based laptop offers high performance, along with the world's most rugged design by Panasonic. With drop shock protection and a MIL-STD-810G and IP65 certification, it's the undisputed leader in the fully rugged category. Its Core i5 Intel processor packs a punch to deliver desktop-class performance and amazing battery life with optional media bay 2nd battery. The Fully Rugged Toughbook 31 offers a 13.3" brilliant touchscreen Wifi 3G Built in. This laptop will go the distance with you anytime, anywhere
