Panasonic’s First 14-inch fully rugged TOUGHBOOK 40 Laptop  

Designed for mission critical operations, this high performance laptop takes rugged computing to another level with enhanced connectivity, productivity, and security in challenging environments

Panasonic India announced the expansion of its rugged laptop offerings in India with the launch of its first 14-inch fully rugged modular laptop – TOUGHBOOK 40. The modular laptop brings together the reliability and ruggedness of the TOUGHBOOK brand, modernized with more innovation to deliver unparalleled power, speed and connectivity to support the evolving needs of mobile workers in today’s digitally transformed world. The powerful new all black model is built for use in the most extreme conditions, with military-grade security and communications capabilities to support mission critical operations. The laptop will be available through Panasonic distributors and system integrators.

With a 1200nit 14-inch FHD touchscreen display, TOUGHBOOK 40 is over a pound lighter than the previous generation despite having a larger display, delivering the perfect blend of rugged strength and extreme performance. The TOUGHBOOK brand pioneered the configurable and modular design, and now with seven modular user-replaceable locations including four expansion (xPAK) areas, as well as the battery, memory, and storage, customers have even more options to customize and protect technology investments as needs shift and modernize at the speed they desire. This allows enterprises to build technology ecosystems that are robust, productive, and cost-effective. Equipped with 11th Generation i5 and i7 Intel® vPro® processors, with optional AMD dedicated graphics* or Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics, TOUGHBOOK 40 boosts computing power to process large amounts of data, images, and video feeds in real-time.

Designed with user experience in mind, the TOUGHBOOK 40 features improved screen brightness, a color-selectable backlit keyboard, and backlit power button and keyboard icons for easier night viewing in low-light environments. For enhanced flexibility, Panasonic also reengineered the resistive touchpad to be 60% larger while still being usable in the rain or when wearing gloves. The battery life is designed to support mission-critical operation with approximately 18 hours from one battery and 36 hours from two, with hot-swap capabilities which insure that the device remains fully operational when batteries are switched. To ensure data protection, the TOUGHBOOK 40 comes standard with encrypted OPAL SSDs, the choice of five different authentication xPAKs, TPM 2.0 and Intel® Hardware Shield. Secure Wipe is a new feature introduced to the TOUGHBOOK 40, which wipes the contents on the drive in a matter of seconds, rather than minutes or even hours. True to its legacy of ruggedness, the TOUGHBOOK 40 laptop takes rugged to another level with IP66 resistance to dust and water, meeting military standards (MIL-STD810H) for temperature, humidity, and vibration, and is 26-side drop tested from 180cm (as tested by an independent third-party lab).
