    Panasonic Toughbook's have long been the poster child for rugged laptops and the CF-19 is another impressive model.

    The W8 comes in an attractive silver, and there's no sign of those cramped keys and woolly, unresponsive track pads. The mouse pad is wonderfully responsive and keys are comfortable to use and type, even if a few common keys are inexplicably small.

    Panasonic have yet to release an Eee-style netbook PC; and with good reason - their Toughbook range of laptops has been hugely successful, and new, interesting additions to their line of ruggedised PCs are coming thick and fast.

    The Panasonic Toughbook range is best known for its fully-ruggedised industrial laptops. However, the CF-52 (£1551 inc. VAT) takes a slightly different approach.

    Panasonic specialises in laptops for those workers who need to be active in difficult and potentially dangerous conditions. So the CF-19 Toughbook (£2325 inc. VAT) comes protected by a solid magnesium casing

    Panasonic has persisted for many years with its Toughbook line. If ever there were a case of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', the Toughbook would be it. First, because the Toughbook was done well in the first place; but second, because it's hard to break

    Few manufacturers can match Panasonic and its Toughbook range when it comes to strength, so if you're looking for a laptop able to withstand virtually any conditions, the semi-ruggedised Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 could be an option.

    Panasonic has clearly made a market for itself by releasing a Tablet PC for fieldworkers. The Toughbook CF-18 is a fully ruggedised device that meets the MIL-STD- 810F military standard
