Panasonic announces Toughbook 33, its next-gen rugged 2-in-1 detachable laptop

Panasonic today announced the availability of Toughbook 33, its next-gen rugged 2-in-1 detachable laptop in the US. Panasonic designed this device after consulting with Toughbook device users from a number of demanding industries including police, fire, government and enterprise professionals. As you expect from a Toughbook device, Toughbook 33 is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G and IP65 standards to perform in even extreme conditions. It comes with 3:2 display enabling less vertical scrolling and it is an aspect ratio that better approximates the feel of 8.5 x 11 paper.

As you expect from a 2017 product, Panasonic Toughbook 31 is powered by 7th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and Windows 10 Pro. The 1200 nit QHD screen incorporates a 15% larger display than any other device in its class and is the highest resolution as well as brightest 2-in-1 display in the industry.

“From the beginning, we’ve designed the Toughbook product line with the demands of the mobile workforce in mind and the 2-in-1 Toughbook 33 device is the truest expression of that commitment to date,” said Brian Rowley, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. “From its remarkable 3:2 display to its durable-but-flexible detachable design, the Toughbook 33 laptop is purpose-built to reset expectations for rugged mobility.”
