toughbook cf-18

Panasonic's Toughbook series has long been a favorite if you need a laptop that you can use in rough locations like construction sites, war zones or nightclubs (hey, who says we can't multitask?). Now the company has brought that go-ahead-and-drop-it ethos to a tablet PC, with the Toughbook CF-18, and Digit-Life had a chance to put one to the torture test. The results? They found that the CF-18, with its base 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, 900 MHz Pentium M and 10.4-inch touchscreen LCD to be something of a laggard when it comes to performance (not surprising, with those specs), but that it was as rugged as they come. So, toss one in your bag — and we do mean toss— if you're headed up the Amazon (and have a source to recharge it), but don't expect to play too many fast-paced games on this.
