I´d like to have on. But i don´t need it.It's impressive. I think Panasonic ToughBook are also made for the army that have to be totally rugged.
"The Atom platform gives this device a decent amount of grunt, while the dual battery setup makes for impressive operation times," how long exactly?Where's the DVD drive? ;)
Try reading page three which mentions the dual two cell batteries and nine hour battery life - you tend to miss a lot of the detail if you just read the verdict and nothing else :)
hot swappable batteries are a brilliant idea - i find it incredible nobody else had thought of implementing it. i feel like going for one of these over an asus eee pc ;)
I did actually read the whole article but clearly missed that bit. Typical I should miss the important bit. Thanks anyway.
Hey No Word about the GPS? , i know its optional but i dont see it on any web site the review or sell them.
I know that Panasonic offers GPS as an option on most of its ToughBooks, but I didn't see the option listed for the CF-U1. That said, Andy is attending the official launch of the U1 tonight, so he can ask about the GPS module there.
Hey Riyad take a look on this pathetic video make by panasonic about the new U1.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...i was asking about the gps because i saw it on the video.
They showed that video at the launch - it's hilarious :)Yep, there's definitely a GPS module available, but I don't know how much it costs. Hopefully all this info will be up on the Panasonic site soon.However, Panasonic informed me today that the pricing they originally gave me was wrong, and the device is actually 50% more expensive, which is annoying to say the least. I'm not convinced that the price increase will put off the target market, but Panasonic definitely needs to get it's pricing right in the first place, especially since I made a point of how affordable it was in the review!
Warning, the lead time for first units has already slipped to END of September. Only orders placed early this month stand any chance of being fulfilled then too. Useful guy at www.toughnrugged.com for any UK buyers. Prices and options all listed.
