The Panasonic Toughbook C2 price has just been announced for those who require a semi-rugged Windows 8 device. It will set users back by close to $2,950 and will be made available in time for the holiday season.
This durable Panasonic device is said to be the first from the company to have been optimized for the Windows 8 Pro operating system. Similar to its predecessors in the Toughbook range, the convertible slate is rugged enough to endure everyday wear and tear and is apt for professionals from education, healthcare, field sales or IT sectors.
The third generation 2.8GHz Intel Core i5-3427U vPro processor powers the laptop and also tags along the Intel Turbo Boost technology. It is the proud owner of a high definition 5-point capacitive multi-touch display spanning 12.5 inches. The Toughbook C2 is deployed with the IPS technology for a wide viewing angle and features anti-reflective coating to cut back on the glaring effect in brightly lit conditions.
Furthermore, there’s a spill-resistant keyboard and a digitizer for input flexibility on the move. A three-hinge design ensures easier transition between a laptop and a tablet and a Y-shaped hand strap facilitates carrying it in both screen orientations. There’s a 720p webcam, an optional 3MP camera and a battery to cough up the juice for about 11 hours. The Wi-Fi-, Bluetooth- and 4G LTE-enabled convertible tablet embeds 2 USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI connector and a VGA output too.
The Panasonic Toughbook C2 will hit stores for $2,949 in December.
