Panasonic launches Toughbook 55 rugged laptop with modular components

Tuesday September 10, 2019
September 10, 2019 – Panasonic has released the latest model of its Toughbook family of tablets and laptop computers with the Toughbook 55 rugged laptop.

The Toughbook 55’s modular design offers expansion packs with a variety of additional features – whether I/O ports, a fingerprint reader, dedicated graphics or a second storage drive. Both the main storage drive and optional second storage drive are quick-release. The RAM and the keyboard itself are user-upgradeable.

The Toughbook 55 has the longest battery life of any Panasonic Toughbook, with the ability to hot-swap an optional second battery without powering down. 

The laptop includes an optional 1000 nit touchscreen, AMD dedicated graphics and the latest Intel 8th Gen quad core i5 and i7 processors (products formerly known as Whiskey Lake). Intel vPro is standard, allowing remote management for IT departments and added security including Intel Hardware Shield.

The Toughbook 55 is the first laptop with tetra-array microphones for speech recognition accuracy. It is also the first Toughbook to offer a USB Type-C port, HDMI 2.0 and Bluetooth 5.0. The new laptop also offers several upgrades from previous Toughbook models: faster Wi-Fi, louder speakers, enhanced brightness and a colour-selectable backlit keyboard.

Toughbook 55 is backwards-compatible with Toughbook 54 vehicle and desktop docks.
