Going beyond the MIL-STD-810G certification with the ability to withstand a six-foot drop, and with a shock-mounted hard drive, magnesium alloy case and UL1604 Class I Division 2 certification, this mobile computer is optimized to operate in hazardous and mission-critical environments. The IP65 certification provides improved water and dust resistance, enabling field workers to maintain their productivity in challenging scenarios, such as sand storms and heavy rain. The display, featuring Panasonic’s CircuLumin™ Technology, enables users to adjust their screen brightness according to the environment they are in – from very dark places (2 nits) to direct sunlight (up to 1,000 nits).
The updated Toughbook 19 now features the Intel® Core™ i5-540UM processor with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology with speeds up to 2.0GHz, Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel® Virtualization Technology.
