Panasonic Launches CF-XZ6 Rugged Business-Oriented Hybrid Laptop

Panasonic is announcing the availability of their latest Toughbook CF-XZ6 business hybrid laptop. Since it is under the Toughbook banner, the CF-XZ6 has a ruggedized build. It is able to withstand and continue performing under extreme conditions where average laptops will fail immediately. This includes high temperatures, dust-filled rooms, high-humidity and low temperature environments.

Toughbook CF-XZ6 Features

Compared to the Panasonic Toughbook CF-33, the new CF-XZ6 is even lighter and easier to carry around. It can be used as a laptop or as a tablet, after detaching the keyboard. It also looks a lot sleeker than previous Panasonic Toughbook products. The external enclosure is made of magnesium alloy, which helps keep the weight down to 1.18 kilograms with a keyboard. Unlike other Panasonic Toughbook products however, it is missing the MIL-STD certification and IP rating. According to Panasonic however, it surpassed their internal 76-centimetre free-fall drop and can withstand 100 kilogram pressure.
