Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 review: The one time being big and bulky is what you want


Built for the extreme conditions, the CF-33 brings a new level of flexibility to the rugged PC market.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 puts a very bright and responsive pen-enabled touch display that can survive -- and operate -- in all types of adverse conditions where a normal tablet wouldn't survive. Several accessory and mounting options both new and...

It's heavy, with the tablet alone weighing more than 3 pounds. The premium keyboard's touchpad is small and performs poorly. It's not widely available.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is a flexible platform for pros who need a durable weatherproof tablet, a laptop or both.
