Panasonic has announced the Toughbook SX2, its latest durable business notebook for professionals who need laptop protection while on the go. According to Panasonic, the Toughbook SX2 will be 40% slimmer than the previous model and will feature up to 14.5 hours of battery. This durable laptop will have drop-resistant technology, an Intel Core i5-3320M processor, and an LED backlit display. Panasonic is targeting this laptop to professionals on the go who could find their laptops in precarious situations.
The Toughbook SX2 will be constructed from magnesium alloy, which Panasonic states will give the laptop drop-resistant protection; allowing for a 30-inch drop to the laptops base when on or off, and a 12-inch drop to other sides of the laptop when off. The lid of the notebook, as well as the base, will be able to withstand up to 200 lbs of pressure. Although durable, Panasonic is also advertising its latest rugged laptop as lightweight, portable, and reliable.
For companies whose personnel spend time in mobile work environments, Panasonic promises to deliver a laptop with durability, portability, and functionality. Panasonic makes it clear that for any business that has employees working outside the office, the Toughbook SX2 will help to ensure data is protected, avoiding potential revenue loss or leaving employees unable to work. Prices start at $2,649 and it will be available later this month from authorized Panasonic resellers.
