Sensational new ultraportable Panasonic Toughbook S10 announced for September availability
Elena Vnorovscaia / Chişinău / Moldova.ORG / -- The trademarked brand name owned by Panasonic Corporation, designed to withstand vibration, drops, spills, extreme temperature, and other rough handling, is not going to stop on its way to innovative products.
That is why Panasonic has announced a new ultraportable Toughbook, which is just ideal for work in the hostile wilderness, construction sites, the battlefield or a even a particularly nasty boardroom.
The incoming Toughbook 12.1-inch S10 mobile machine weighs 3 pounds and even manages to sport a DVD drive. The device runs Windows 7 Professional and has a 12.1-inch (1280 x 800) LED-backlit display, a 2.5 GHz Core i5-2520M processor, up to 8GB of RAM, a 320GB HDD, a DVD drive, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, USB 3.0 connectivity, D-Sub and HDMI outputs, an AS card reader, and a battery enabling up to 12.5 hours of operation. Optional goodies include Gobi 2000 3G mobile broadband and a fingerprint reader.
If you are an emotional person who prefers to throw the technique, it is not so terrible because Panasonic says the S10 can withstand a 2.5-foot drop when running (as long as it lands on its base) and a 1 foot drop from 26 different impact points, as long as the device is turned off. The S10 can also resist up to 6 ounces of liquid without drowning and 220 pounds of compression.
The S10 will be available in September for a suggested retail price of $2450.
