Panasonic updates two Toughbook models in the UK

Panasonic this week announced it has updated its semi-rugged Toughbook CF-52 and business-rugged Toughbook CF-T8 notebooks in the UK with new hardware. The CF-52 can now be had with either a 2.4GHz or 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 processor as well as 2GB of RAM and shock-mounted, quick release hard drives with up to 250GB in capacity. New options include wireless connection options such as a Gobi 2000 3G modem.

The latest Wi-Fi chip from Intel and Bluetooth 2.1 module is also installed. The CF-52's design allows for the future addition of 3G mobile broadband and WiMAX radios.

The 12.1-inch touchscreen Toughbook CF-T8 now ships with Microsoft Windows 7 Professional and a low-voltage 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, though it can be had with Windows XP as a doawngrade option. It gets a removable and shock-mounted 250GB hard drive. Bluetooth 2.1 is also now standard, and the Gobi chip remains optional. Battery life is rated at up to eight hours.

The upgraded Toughbook CF-52 and CF-T8 are now available in the UK and are soon expected to arrive in North America.
