Panasonic Semi-Rugged Toughbook 53 & Toughbook 54 — A Review

Rugged notebooks are largely purchased by enterprise businesses deploying workers in hazardous environments or by local and federal government agencies such as police, firefighters, enforcement, military mechanics or with mobile workers who require a laptop to survive just about anything.

Why would someone buy a semi-rugged laptop over a fully rugged laptop? This is a great question many ask when shopping the market for ruggedized laptops, tablets and handled computers. Fully rugged, semi-rugged, ultra-rugged, business-rugged are all terms floating around the rugged computer market — so, how do you know the right solution to choose for your mobile workforce? Rugged notebooks are largely purchased by enterprise businesses deploying workers in hazardous environments or by local and federal government agencies such as police, firefighters, enforcement, military mechanics or with mobile workers who require a laptop to survive just about anything. Semi-rugged notebook computers are purpose-built for mobile workers, designed with a magnesium alloy case, a shock or gel-mounted hard disk drive, and a spill-proof keyboard. Semi-rugged laptops are very good for travel and outdoor use, and are best for people who travel often and need to occasionally work outside, or inside a vehicle while on the road.  A semi rugged laptop is more durable, lasts longer, and requires less frequent repairs, creating a lasting return on investment.

If you are searching for a semi-rugged laptop, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-53 is an excellent choice, and one of our best selling semi-rugged notebooks. With a 14-inch HD LED display, Windows, Intel Core i5 vPro and a multi-touch touchpad, it performs like a desktop with the convenience of a notebook.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-53 is designed with an anti-reflective and anti-glare HD display, and optional 4G LTE multi carrier mobile broadband with satellite GPS – as well as a magnesium alloy case with handle, spill-resistant keyboard and certification to survive a 3-foot drop, the semi-rugged Toughbook 53 is built to assure a high long-term return on investment for a diverse range of users in utilities, public safety, field service, home and building inspection, just to name a few.

The Toughbook 53’s shock-mounted flex-connect hard disk drive with quick release can handle bumps and vibrations to keep your important data safe.

Whether looking to purchase mobile laptops or tablet for thousands of workers or for a small team, buyers need to pay attention to total cost of ownership and return on investment. The goal is to deploy a solution that will improve productivity and function reliably over a long period of time. The goal should not be to buy a solution simply based on purchase price.  To make an educated purchase, organizations must evaluate all costs, including upfront and long-term.
