Tablet PC Panasonic Toughbook C1 CF review

The 12.1-inch semi-rugged Toughbook CF-C1 is designed to withstand vibrations, drops (up to 76 cm) and accidental spills. It does not seem enough, and it feels good to use, but is very useful. Its touch screen lets you use your laptop into a tablet PC, and there's even a convenient strap to the bottom of the laptop so you can easily carry in one hand, as if it were a notebook, for example.

A 1.5 kg, the Toughbook CF-C1 is a deceptive light notebook is not as robust as previous Toughbook've seen (like the CF-19MK3). Instead, it is designed to be difficult, but still look like a normal convertible Tablet PC. It's good for all types of business users and field workers who want something solid to work on tasks and office site of the former.
It 'the first generation of Intel Core i5-520 CPU, which is the frequency of 2.4 GHz, dual core and Hyper-Threading. E 'joined the DDR3 SDRAM 2GB, 250GB, 5400rpm hard drive and integrated Intel graphics HD. It is pre-installed 32-bit version of Windows 7 Professional.

This is not a solid configuration by any means, but it has enough grunt to get through most desktop and Web applications with ease, and you can even use it for more complicated tasks such as multimedia files editing and encoding (although you may want to increase the RAM in this case). The recorded in our test 55sec and 1min mixer in our iTunes test, while in 3DMark06 recorded 1335th These results are standard for a laptop with a Core i5 and 2.4 GHz Graphics Card Integrated Intel HD.

The hard drive is a 250GB model with a speed of 5400 rpm and he recorded a transfer rate of 22.31 MB per second in our test, which is slow. Panasonic has a greater capacity at lower cost by installing a mechanical drive, but an SSD laptop would do more to protect from data loss, and make the system faster as well. We came close many times Toughbook its nominal height of 76cm, while he was in business and the continued presence of malfunction. The hard drive is mounted in a cage, which have soft cushions on each side.

The 4-cell battery, 43-watt-hour lasted 2 hours and 25 minutes in our tests, where we turn off power management for Wi-Fi, to maximize screen brightness and Xvid-encoded video loop. You can get a better life in one of several possible profiles for Panasonic, which are present, or you can create your own. In both cases, only two and a half hours is not a good result and you can consider an optional second battery if you plan to use the laptop on a regular basis in the same area.
