Panasonic‘s Toughbook series debuted 25 years ago, and the tech giant is seemingly commemorating the anniversary with one of the best Toughbook models yet, the 2-in-1 Toughbook G2. The device will be available to corporate customers through some authorized sellers and starts from $2,999.
The Toughbook G2 new laptop packs more than 18 hours of battery life in the detachable PC that Panasonic has just unveiled. The Toughbook G2 can function as either a laptop or a tablet and has some optional accessories that help make working with the PC a wonderful experience.
The optional keyboard enables you to deploy the device like a laptop when the need arises, while the optional mount will help you secure the device as a tablet on a vehicle or desk.1 of 3
