Toughbook 33

Panasonic has announced a new 2-in-1 detachable laptop in its expanding Toughbook line-up for 2017 products, called Panasonic Toughbook 33. The 2017 Panasonic Toughbook 33 runs Windows 10 and is powered by the 7th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor to deliver incredible experience.

As always, the Panasonic Toughbook 33 meets the MIL-STD-810G and IP65 standards to perform in even the most extreme conditions. It has a 12″ qHD touchscreen display with 3:2 aspect ratio and the favorite personal digital assistant, Cortana comes built-in for maximum flexibility in the field. It can help you complete tasks, set reminders, and work across your devices more productively.

“From the beginning, we’ve designed the Toughbook product line with the demands of the mobile workforce in mind and the 2-in-1 Toughbook 33 device is the truest expression of that commitment to date,” said Brian Rowley, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. “From its remarkable 3:2 display to its durable-but-flexible detachable design, the Toughbook 33 laptop is purpose-built to reset expectations for rugged mobility.”
