Now available for purchase, the Panasonic Toughbook T4 and Toughbook W4 models are the next generation of thin and light laptop computers designed to meet the needs of mobile workers. The new models both come standard with a magnesium alloy case, shock mounted hard drive, integrated wireless LAN, removable hard drive, 12.1 inch anti-glare LCD, wireless on-off switch, and docking connection. Unique to the Toughbook T4 model is its increased battery capability, delivering more than nine and a half hours of battery life while weighing in at only 3.3 pounds. The T4 also features a sleek compact design with ergonomic hand strap and includes a touch-screen LCD. Utilizing the included image rotation software makes the T4 ideal for use while on the move, appealing to a wide range of industries, including mobile healthcare and aviation professionals. The W4, which features a traditional 12.1 inch, anti-glare LCD, weighs in at just 2.8 pounds, even with its integrated DVD/CD-RW combo drive. With a battery life of more than 6 hours, the W4 was built for mobile executives and active sales teams. It’s equally useful in the conference room or on an airline tray table.
