Panasonic Toughbook CF-W5

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Toughbook CF-W5 is a durable little laptop that weighs a mere 2.9 pounds, is housed in a magnesium-alloy case, and completely integrates a CD-RW Combo drive.

  • Cons: Performance is sluggish. Would like to see a DVD burner added.

Wired
6 January 2007

  • Conclusion: Das Panasonic Toughbook CF-W5 ist vorwiegend für professionelle Anwender gedacht, die ein robustes Notebook für den häufigen Einsatz unterwegs suchen. Hier spielen hohe Anwendungsleistung und hochauflösende Displays mit riesigen Kontrastwerten keine Rolle.
  • Pros: sehr leise, da ohne Lüfter, robust
  • Cons: ungünstiges Tastaturlayout, Unterseite wird recht heiß
