Views of the Panasonic Toughbook MCA

Panasonic announced their Intel Atom based Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA) today. The system meets the usual Toughbook standards of ruggedness while addressing the needs of the healthcare community.

One advantage of Atom based systems is that they can be completely sealed – important in a hospital setting. Atom is low power enough and cool enough that it does not require active cooling from a fan. Panasonic worked with doctors, nurses, and hospitals on the design. Not many details available yet since it isn’t ready to ship, but as an Intel Atom system, it should be fairly fully featured.
