Panasonic Toughbooks have been known to be one of the most durable laptops present. They did not prove us wrong upon the launch of their Toughbook 30. Now, they’re keeping on the trend with the introduction of the Panasonic Toughbook 31 which is dubbed as the most powerful rugged notebook in the market.

The new Panasonic Toughbook 31, like the other machines form the series, is an MIL-STD-810G certified for protection from 6-foot drops, vibration, shock, rain, dust, sand, and severe variations in temperatures. It is designed specifically to meet any downtime that one would experience like the hazards mentioned so it is really tough enough to be used in the field. The toughbook is also encased in a magnesium alloy case aimed to protect against water. The hard drives are shock resistant and can be easily removed.
