Designed with outdoor mobile workers in mind, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-53 is built to withstand shocks due to drops, inclement weather, and temperature changes in extreme environments. Encased in a magnesium alloy chassis with a built-in carry handle, the Toughbook 53 has been tested and proven to withstand drops up to 3', shock, vibration, dust, high altitudes, high/low temperatures, temperature shock, and humidity.
The 14" widescreen display is LED-backlit, which means it brightens faster, uses less power, and provides better image quality than its CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1366 x 768 native resolution powered by integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400.
The Toughbook CF-53 is powered by a 2.60 GHz Intel Core i5 processor that can be overclocked up to 3.4 GHz. The system comes with 16GB of installed RAM, a 1000GB 7200 rpm hard drive, and an SDXC flash drive slot for memory expansion. It is equipped with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. Two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports are provided for attaching peripherals, and a 54 Slot ExpressCard and a Type II PC Card are included for inserting a memory card reader, TV tuner, or other expansion cards. A DVD burner is built-in, and HDMI and VGA ports are available for outputting video onto a separate display.
The laptop features a number of security measures that will appeal to IT security departments, like a Kensington lock slot, TPM security, and Computrace theft protection. This system runs Windows 10 Professional by default, but includes an optional down grade to Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit.
