When you think about the Panasonic brand, you are reminded of televisions, air conditioning units, washing machines, and so on. What does not come into mind are mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. Let’s face it, the mobile devices market is pretty saturated. There are many more brands searching for a meaningful market share than you would consider economically viable. Standing out from this crowded market and make consumers notice your products calls for something very unique. This is what Panasonic managed to do with its Toughbook Tablet line. As a result, they have created themselves market niche.
Panasonic Toughbook: what is it?
The Panasonic Toughbook is simply the most durable tablet PC currently on the market. It is also powerful and very reliable. It is built for scenarios where a normal mobile device would be vulnerable and likely not survive. Being able to withstand the hardest of conditions means there are no expensive repairs or replacements. And, above all, there is also no losing critical work data.
Now we will see the pros and cons in further detail.
Most mobile devices do not consider the external world when they are being designed. The Panasonic Toughbook is the exact opposite, and considers all frequent external factors. A normal portable PC is likely to experience downtime or lose data with accidental liquid objects falling onto them, spills, and drops. The Panasonic Toughbook is idealized and designed to overcome all of these.
The Panasonic Toughbook failure rate is the lowest of all tablet PCs. The average failure rate of other mobile computers currently for sale is 21%. The Toughbook’s failure rate is unbelievably low at 2.99%. In other words, a Toughbook tablet is built to last for years to come.
Ownership of a Panasonic Toughbook presents more impressive statistics. When comparing total annual ownership costs between the Toughbook and other commercial-grade PCs, the Panasonic tablet offers remarkably lower costs. In other words, you and your company will save money over the years, all along having an overall much better user experience.
The main drawback to a Toughbook ownership is its price tag. It’s almost twice the price of other tablet computers. On the other hand, these initial costs can be offset by the other financial and non-financial benefits derives from the computer over its years of lifespan.
The Panasonic Toughbook is not a regular portable PC. It is designed for a specific consumer, who are bound to be quite satisfied with its purchase. The fact that the Toughbook features top-of-the-line hardware and the most recent software, plus its long durability, ensures it carries its weight in the performance department.
