Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 Review

When most people think of Panasonic Toughbooks, they think of fully-ruggedized machines such as the CF-30 or the CF-29.  However, Panasonic also makes an entire line of semi-ruggedized machines such as the CF-74.  These machines are not quite built to withstand the same abuse as the fully-ruggedized machines, such as the constant vibration of being mounted in a vehicle.  However, they are built to withstand significantly more abuse than a standard business laptop.  The Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 is designed for professionals on-the-go.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 has some of the ruggedized features that most people consider standard in a Toughbook.

  • Shock Mounted Hard Drive - Keep your data safe while your laptop case is being tossed around during travel
  • Spill-Resistant Keyboard - No need to worry about accidental late night coffee spills, the protective plate will keep any liquid from reaching your system board and causing disastrous damage to your machine
  • Daylight Readable Screen - Although outdoor viewing isn't too important for boardroom professionals, it is a must for professionals whose jobs keep them in the outdoors
  • Magnesium Alloy Case & Handle - This Toughbook is built with a material that is twenty times stronger than a standard business laptop

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 has also taken some major technological leaps from the fully-rugged machines that most Toughbook users are accustomed to.

  •  Intel Core 2 Duo Processor - Faster processing speeds than most fully and semi-rugged Toughbooks currently on the market
  • Expanded RAM - Based on the operating system installed, the CF-74 can support up to 4 Gig of RAM
  • Windows 7 Ready - One of a few refurbished models currently able to fully utilize the benefits of Windows 7
  • Light-weight - Weighing in at only 5.9 pounds, this laptop is easy to transport to various meetings
Like choosing any laptop, you have to weigh the options of what you need the most and where you plan to use it.  The Panasonic Toughbook CF-74 Ideal for mobile executives or any business person who is constantly on-the-go.
