Panasonic updates its Toughbook 31 notebook

The Japanese notebook maker Panasonic has updated its extremely durable Toughbook 31 line with a new model that now includes the latest Intel Broadwell processors.

The new notebook is housed in a sealed chassis that measures 292 x 302 x 74 mm and weighs 3.58 kilograms. The weight clearly shows that this is a rugged device that can withstand various inhospitable conditions. The notebook fully meets the military MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-810G standards and can sustain drops, vibrations, shock and more while being completely water-, dirt- and sand-resistant. There’s no need to mention that the new Toughbook is fully functional under extreme temperatures too.

On the outside the new version looks exactly the same as the older one but the changes are inside. The new Toughbook 31 includes a 13.1-inch display at 1024 x 768 pixels and 1200 cd/m2 of brightness for the display, which means you will be able to read text in direct sunlight. The rest of the specs include an Intel Core i5-5300U Broadwell processor with vPro technology, 4 GB of RAM (up to 16 GB), a 500 GB hard drive that can be exchanged for a 512 GB SSD, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, Wi-Fi, GPS, LTE and more. The integrated battery can power the notebook for up to 18 hours, which is truly a feat!

The new Panasonic Toughbook 31 will be on the market by the end of February. The notebook will sell for USD 3700.
