Panasonic isn’t the biggest name in laptops these days, except if you are planning on dropping, splashing, or otherwise abusing the daylights out of your machine. In that case, the Toughbook series is right up your alley. And the newest member of the Toughbook family, the S10, won’t force you to make any performance tradeoffs for the tank-like design.
The S10 packs a new Sandy Bridge CPU, specifically the Core i5-2520M. Users will also be treated to the usual menu of goodies like 4GB of RAM, HDMI-out, USB 3.0, and a 320GB shock-proof HDD. The battery is also supposed to last up to 12.5 hours, or so they claim.
The thing that makes the Toughbook so tough is the Magnesium alloy casing. The S10 can take more than 220 pounds of pressure on the lid while closed. it is also sealed to prevent spills form frying your computer. This 12.1-inch machine isn’t going to come cheap, though. The Toughbook S10 will be going for $2449 at retail next month.
