Who is Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 For?
Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is perhaps the toughest 2-in-1 in the market as of today. The new Toughbook is meant for professionals who need to operate in extreme conditions and have to worry about more than just accidental spillage. So, if you are a home user and are buying it as an assurance against your clumsiness, it might very well prove to be an overkill.
Panasonic says that the device is ideal for industries including police, emergency services, government agencies, defense, field service workers, maintenance and service technicians in the utilities and telecommunications.
“Users today are looking to do more with rugged devices than ever before. With the evolving needs of enterprise and government sectors, we are transforming with times to offer best computing solutions for our customers. Old bulky laptops present safety concerns, portability issues and are not very resilient to damage. We at Panasonic are constantly looking to offer products that not only improve the efficiency, but enhance productivity and bottom-line performances for a number of years,” said Mr. Vijay Wadhwan, Business Head System and Solution Business, Panasonic India
