At just 2.2 pounds, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 is the thinnest and lightest fully rugged 10-inch Windows 8 tablet, but manages to pack in a sunlight-readable 1920 x 1200 touch-screen display and strong battery life. Better yet, it does so for a reasonable $2,399. Overall, this tablet is ideal for those who need a device for harsh environments, but don't want to make any compromises. quote

The performance is solid, it lives up to its reputation of being tough and rugged, but the price will put it out of the reach of smaller business and individuals.

The standard battery life makes this only just capable of lasting a working day, but the sturdy build and snappy insides mean the ToughPad is a hardwearing and hardworking option.

Although it very much earns five stars for design and technical merit, its range of features isn't going to be required by every small business.

Panasonic offers a great tool for craftsmen, dealers, warehouse workers and other jobs that require sufficient performance for large data but also need a device that can survive a drop or water.
