The toughest environment requires the toughest computer, designed to keep on performing no matter what you put it through. Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers and Toughpad tablets continue to win fans throughout the world because for us, failure is not option. These impressive devices have been made to withstand extreme conditions and harsh treatment, while protecting your data without missing a beat.
We know our Toughbooks inside and out because we know that to really be rugged, every part of a mobile computer from the smallest screws to the casing must meet the highest standard of durability. Unlike most computer manufacturers, Panasonic controls virtually every part of the Toughbook build, from design through to delivery. Then we put our Toughbooks through such a rigorous testing program in our quest to determine just how tough they are and continually improve on the results.

To really get the inside scoop on how tough a Toughbook has to be to make the grade, we spoke to Jason Lee, Product Marketing Manager, Toughbook, Panasonic Australia.
What is done to ensure that Toughbooks are impact and shock resistant?
“Toughbooks and Toughpads go through rigorous testing, both at Panasonic’s testing facility and factory in Kobe, Japan, and also by independent third party test labs,” Jason said.
“There are varying degrees of ruggedness within our product range, and the level of drop testing is determined by these broad categories; Business Rugged, Semi Rugged, Fully Rugged. Panasonic’s commitment to quality is unrivaled, with more than 500 checks and tests conducted on every unit throughout the manufacturing process.”
Examples of the maximum height that products are drop tested can be seen below:
Why is this ruggedness so important to workers out in the field?
“The quality, durability and reliability of Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers translate into significant financial advantages. In situations that would damage conventional computers, rugged Toughbook computers keep performing. As a result, users eliminate costly repairs or replacements, and avoid wasting time to recover lost work. This is especially important for mission critical tasks, when users rely on their equipment whilst out in the field,” Jason said.
