Panasonic Toughbook CF-52

CNET
3 July 2008
  • Summary: The Toughbook CF-52 is a solidly built 'semi-ruggedised' laptop with a hardened outer casing, shock-mounted hard disk and covered ports. However, this heavy system isn't the most portable and its battery life falls a long way short of Panasonic's claims
  • Pros: Very solid outer casing; spill-resistant keyboard and touch pad; wide-aspect-ratio 15.4-inch screen.
  • Cons: Large and heavy; some ports are unprotected; disappointing battery life.

A semi-rugged notebook for the semi-rugged individual.

  • Summary: For demanding users who tend to miss their mouth while they sip, or for anyone who is always using their notebook on the road, the semi-rugged Toughbook CF-52 is a worthy proposition. But it won't withstand everything you throw at it.
  • Pros: Resistant to accidental spills and can survive infrequent drops and bumps, PC Card and ExpressCard/54 slots, long battery life
  • Cons: DVD burner vibrated noticeably, handle makes the notebook bulky

Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 review -

  • Pros: Still works after having water thrown on it, getting stomped on and being pushed off a desk; more portable than fully rugged laptop; can choose to upgrade RAM to 4GB.
  • Cons: Keyboard could be a bit cramped for larger hands, sold with dated Internet Explorer 6, battery life is rather low considering it's not the lightest of laptops
