Panasonic ups most rugged Toughbooks to Core 2 Duo

Core 2 Duo Toughbooks

Panasonic today updated its most hardened Toughbook notebooks to use the mobile version of Intel's Core 2 Duo processor. The convertible Toughbook-19 tablet and the more conventional Toughbook-30 both receive added performance, with the former model continuing its use of an ultra-low voltage model for battery life and heat while the larger 13-inch system uses a standard edition.

Brightness has also been vastly improved on either system: normally a limitation of touchscreen displays such as those used by Panasonic, the new Toughbooks gain a 1,000cd/m2 brightness level. The company's two military-grade computers can be had for $4,000 (Toughbook-19) and $4,500 (Toughbook-30).
