Panasonic Toughbooks Now at UK Stores

As much as we love playing around with Panasonic's awesome ToughBooks, actually seeing, trying and buying a Toughbook in the UK was strictly the preserve of the types in charge of multi-million pound acquisition contracts.

Panasonic has finally amended this situation, however, with 15 of its own high-street stores displaying and selling a selection of Toughbooks aimed at small and medium size businesses, as well as anyone with a large wallet and an undying need for a laptop that will probably out live them.

The models in question are the lightweight, business orientated CF-F8, the ultra-light and portable CF-W8 and the entry-level, semi-rugged CF-52.

All models are on sale now at the following locations: Bristol, Chesterfield, Dorchester, Exeter, Guildford, Kingston, Haverfordwest, Limerick, Lincoln, Llanelli, Milton Keynes, Newton Abbot, Plymouth, Salisbury, and Sheffield.

This is excellent news.

My CF-T5 (which I had to order from a US firm) is still perfoming marvellously for me after 4-5 years despite the original Win XP installation going the way all MS OSes go eventually and having to be replaced by Ubuntu.

I'm seriously considering Win 7 for it.

I have never had anything go wrong with it that could be tied to hardware despite many work trips with it in my check-on luggage (as carrying two laptops through security was always met with suspicion, and I never feared for the longevity of the laptop even when being thrown around by the baggage 'operatives').

By enabling the ECO mode (where the battery charges to 80%) the battery is still functioning admirably, and Panasonic seem to have a knack for eliminating unnecessary current consumption wherever possible.

I highly encourage anyone for whom the spec meets demands to take the plunge.
