At an eventuality hold in New York City today, Panasonic denounced a Toughbook 33, iterating on a success of a Toughbook 20 and 31 array of devices. In fact, a organisation initial showed it off during Mobile World Congress in February, nonetheless certain teenager things have changed.
This device is a detachable, definition that we can mislay a arrangement from a keyboard. It’s meant for those that work in a field, so we can dump it (MIL-STD-810G tested), or we can brief a can of Coke all over it and mist it off with a hose so it doesn’t get sticky. You can also see from a picture above that a touchscreen works with gloves on, so workers in a margin can use it though stealing their gear.
The Toughbook 33 comes with 4 choices of processors, a Core i5 or i7, with possibly one accessible in Intel’s sixth-generation Skylake or seventh-generation Kaby Lake variants. The reason for a Skylake accessibility is so we can hillside to Windows 7 if we need to; however, all of these inclination will boat with Windows 10.
Obviously, all of a courage of a device are in a display, including dual batteries, that can be hot-swapped, definition that we can indeed change a batteries in a margin though ever carrying to energy down a Toughbook. There are dual opposite keyboards available, a slim one and a incomparable one with a handle; as you’d imagine, it gets a bit top-heavy with a Lite keyboard, though on a incomparable one, a hoop indeed pops out to make it some-more stable.
It’s transparent that Panasonic put a lot of suspicion into a Toughbook 33, right down to a pins that bond a arrangement to a keyboard.
Unlike many inclination with such connectors, those pins won’t corrode, according to Panasonic. You can also brief H2O in there, nonetheless it’s a one partial of a device where we wouldn’t wish to let it collect.
