Overview

The Toughbook 53 semi-rugged notebook from Panasonic (also known as the CF-53) features a 14" HD LED display, the latest Intel® Core™ i5 processor, and an oversized multi-touch touchpad. This impressive 5.6-pound rugged laptop performs like a desktop.

The Toughbook 53 is a semi-rugged notebook with a Magnesium alloy chassis, which is much more durable than plastic or aluminum and provides extra protection from bumps and bangs. The semi-rugged classification refers to the fact that the Panasonic Toughbook 53 is not sealed against the outdoor elements. It meets military standard MIL-STD-810G for altitude (up to 15,000 ft), humidity, and dust. It can also handle being dropped on six sides from 30 inches. It has a spill-resistant keyboard and a built-in handle. The Toughbook 53's shock-mounted flex-connect hard disk drive with quick release can handle bumps and vibrations to keep your important data safe. An optional hard drive heater is available for working in cold environments. Optional solid state drives are also available for even more protection from accidental drops.

The 14-inch display has a 1,366 x 768 resolution (720p). An optional sunlight viewable touchscreen is available for greater flexibility and so you can use it outdoors. An optional 1.3-megapixel webcam can be installed above the screen.

Embedded wireless connectivity on the Toughbook 53 includes 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Toughbook 53 also offers an optional GPS receiver, and optional 4G LTE Mobile Broadband.

Security features on the Toughbook 53 include optional fingerprint and insertable Smartcard readers. An ExpressCard, SDXC, PC Card, HDMI, VGA, audio jacks, Ethernet, two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and optional Firewire are integrated to connect you to your peripherals and media. The Toughbook 53 also has a DVD Super MULTI Drive with Dual Layer Support.
