Pansonic Releases Core Duo Toughbooks



Panasonic-toughbook-cf-19Pansonic has released a couple of new Toughbooks, one a Tablet PC. The CF-19 is a convertible Tablet PC and the CF-30 is a clamshell notebook. Both models have very bright screens with the Tablet PC featuring a 550 Nit screen. I’m just asking but isn’t Nit a bizarre name or acronym?

Anyway here are some specs for the CF-19.

By the way, we’d love to give one of these Toughbooks, or any other ruggedized Tablet PC a once over in an InkShow, if any of the OEMs would care to comply. (Doesn’t hurt to ask.)
