The Panasonic Tougbook 31 isn’t your average laptop. Drop it from six feet, and it would still work!

For users looking more on functionality and less on appearance, the Panasonic Toughbook 31 is a great choice. Its latest model lasts up to 18 hours on a single charge and keep on running for 27 more hours by using the optional, second battery. This rugged laptop is reasonably fast: it’s powered by a fifth-generation Intel Core i5-5300U processor, Intel HD Graphics 5500, and Windows 8.1 Pro (although that maligned operating system can be replaced with Windows 7 professional).

The Panasonic Toughbook 31 further features a 13.1-inch sunlight-viewable LED touchscreen with XGA 1024×768 resolution, Wi-Fi 801.11ac connectivity, IP65-certified water and dust protection and MIL-STD-810G specifications. For these specs, the laptop sure is tough, yet bulky. It measures 11.5 x 11.9 x 2.9 in and weighs 7.9 or 8.2 lbs (depending on battery type).

  1. I have long wanted to own a Panasonic Toughbook, but for this refresh, I still have reservations about the Intel HD Graphics chip it contains.

  2. First look I thought it was a portable DVD but interesting concept of a rugged laptop. It’s definitely not for the mass public though with a price that high…and I thought Apple was expensive.haha
