Panasonic unveils the Toughbook 55, a robust 14-inch laptop for field work, packing the punch of an Intel Raptor Lake 13th-gen processor. The new Panasonic rugged notebook boasts a brilliantly bright 1,000 nits display, eliminating any compromises outdoors.
At 2 kilograms and 3.3 centimeters tall, the third-gen Toughbook 55 maintains a relatively compact build despite meeting the MIL-STD-810H standard and IP53 certification.

Buyers can opt for either the Intel Core i5-1345U or the Core i7-1370P, offering six performance cores clocking up to 5.2 GHz and eight efficiency cores. The new Panasonic rugged notebook accommodates up to 64 GB of user-upgradable DDR4-3,200 RAM and houses two M.2 SSDs. While the base model features a dated 14-inch display at 1,366 x 768 pixels, the top-tier model showcases a 1,080p touchscreen boasting a brightness of 1,000 nits, ensuring screen visibility even under sunlight.
With speakers peaking at 92 dB, they are functional in louder environments. The 1,080p webcam supports facial recognition for Windows login and includes a privacy shutter.
