Ruggedized laptop upgrades add LTE, hard drive heater

Panasonic has made some upgrades to its catalog of rugged mobile computer systems. The Toughbook 31 notebook now comes with options for Intel Core i5 processors running at up to 3.5GHz, increased touchscreen responsiveness, and a battery claimed to last more than 14 hours on a single charge, along with other improvements.

The sixth generation of the line, the Toughbook 31 is certified to meet or surpass MIL-STD-810G tests for shocks, drops, vibrations, extreme temperatures and high altitudes. The 13.1-inch XGA LED touchscreen can be reduced to a low as 2 nits of brightness, allowing it to be used while concealed at night-time. Storage has been expanded to a 500GB 7200rpm hard drive, complete with shock mountings, quick release, and heater, and the previously included battery calibration tool has been improved to be able to run in the background, allowing simultaneous use of the computer.

Connectivity has also been updated, with the Intel-powered Wi-Fi connecting to 802.11a, b, g, and n wireless networks, while further options for integrated 4G LTE wireless or 3G Gobi mobile broadband extend its usability.

Available in the US, the Toughbook 31 starts from $3,500.
