25 years of rugged firsts

From day one, Panasonic has created rugged, reliable devices for your toughest jobs. See how our TOUGHBOOK mobile solutions have changed the way you work over the years.

The first professional-level fully rugged laptop released in 1996 was designed to withstand harsh environments with impact, vibration, dust and moisture resistance and cleared military-drop-test standards. This pioneering model became the blueprint for future TOUGHBOOK mobile devices.

In 2003, Panasonic released the first convertible laptop, featuring a touchscreen with the ability to pivot to a tablet for increased portability. The case was constructed of magnesium alloy for shock resistance and durability.

Panasonic built the first fully rugged tablet in 2008 for the health care industry. This fully sealed mobile clinical device seamlessly ran a full operating system in a compact and lightweight design. It was also easily sanitized and had long-life, hot-swappable twin batteries to last through demanding shifts.

This slim, lightweight, fully rugged handheld device was first released in 2016 and featured an innovative ergonomic design. The angled rear barcode reader helps workers overcome the difficulties of repetitive wrist strain. Today the TOUGHBOOK N1 has been embraced by mobile workers in many different industries.

The first fully rugged 2-in-1 of its kind featured a 12-inch screen, hot-swappable batteries, a detachable keyboard and highly configurable capabilities. With the computing power of a laptop combined with the portability of a tablet, the TOUGHBOOK 33 brings flexibility to field workers in the most demanding environments.

Released in 2019, the TOUGHBOOK 55 breaks new ground in the rugged market, offering unrivaled flexibility in even the most demanding and unpredictable environments. It features unprecedented battery life (up to 40 hours with an optional second battery) and innovative modular expansion packs. I/O, optical drives, authentication readers and even discrete graphic expansion packs can be upgraded by users.
