Rugged convertible tablet
Rugged convertible laptop / tablet
A 10.4″ touch screen display that swivels to turn the Panasonic CF19 into a touch screen tablet is the defining feature of this tough little lump of magnesium. Introduced in 2006, it has been revised six times since, meaning there are seven generations of CF19. Starting off life with a Core Duo 1.06Ghz processor and 512MB of RAM, the Panasonic wasn’t super fast when released. The latest versions have Intel Core™ i5-3340M vPro™ processors at 2.7GHz so they should run pretty well. The competing V100 from Getac has an Intel Core™ i7-3520M 2.9GHz if you really need some grunt.
CF19 in Action
The Cf19 managed about 7 hours of battery life – which is pretty respectable. The latest versions last even longer.
