40 percent faster, double the memory and storage

Panasonic has doubled down with its latest generation of the popular TOUGHBOOK 33 rugged notebook by delivering 40 percent faster performance, double the memory and storage of its predecessor all at a similar price point.

The updated 2-in-1 detachable notebook gets a lot of action for emergency fire and field services organisations across Europe.

The TOUGHBOOK 33 has a 10th generation Intel Core i5-10310U Processor (with Intel® vPro Technology) Quad-Core CPU (previously Dual Core), which Panasonic says delivers up to 40 per cent more computing performance whilst maintaining its 20-hour work-life with user hot-swappable, extended twin batteries.

Memory has been doubled from 8GB to 16GB RAM as standard (optional 32GB). Storage has been boosted to 512GB (from 256GB) with the NVMe Opal SSD, which self-encrypts in real-time, freeing-up processing capacity and offering enhanced data protection to information sensitive industries such as emergency services, security forces and defence.

A quick-release, removable Solid State Drive is available on a project basis for those organisations requiring added data security. Other additional enhancements include the latest WiFi (Intel Wireless 6 AX 201) and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity and a USB Type-CTM port with charging capabilities.

The Windows 10 Pro device includes a 12” outdoor 1,200cd/m2 QHD (2160 x 1440 pixels) display with 3:2 aspect ratio and sunlight-viewable, glove enabled, 10-finger capacitive dual touchscreen. In addition, it includes a IP55 digitiser pen for workers that need the highest levels of writing, drawing or signature accuracy in the toughest weather conditions.

With its detachable keyboard and six usage modes, a comprehensive range of industry ports and customisable options, the 2-in-1 offers the best of all worlds for mobile workers. Drop resistant to 150cm* and with an IP65 rating against dust and water, this latest device is tough enough for any outdoor environment.

Panasonic European Product Manager for rugged mobile IT said: “The TOUGHBOOK 33 detachable notebook is relied upon by public sector and field services workers across Europe and is already being used as the Mobile Data Terminal of choice by 35 different fire services across the UK alone. These second-generation enhancements ensure the device has been future-proofed for longer use with incredibly competitive pricing and ongoing compatibility with existing peripherals, docks and mounts.”

The TOUGHBOOK 33 2-in-1 detachable notebook is priced starting at £3,160 + VAT and the TOUGHTBOOK 33 tablet starting at £2,662 + VAT.
