CF-19 vs. CF-20 Toughbooks

Posted by

       The CF-19 Panasonic Toughbook has long been the go to unit for jobs that require not only fully rugged durability, but also easy portability.  The high mobility of Panasonic Toughpads comes at a compromise of not having a physical keyboard.The physical keyboard on a Toughbook is useful to job codes such as EMS that require the keyboard for typing up long reports.The CF-19 was the first fully rugged convertible laptop and featured a screen that could swivel 180 degrees to easily convert from laptop to tablet in a moment’s notice.        While the CF-19 was the solution to many form factor needs, there were a few complaints.Panasonic listened to customer feedback in their development of the CF-19 successor: the CF-20 Toughbook.The CF-20 takes everything that was loved about the CF-19 and improves upon it.The form factor of the Toughbook 20 has been slimmed down and streamlined.Able to convert not only from laptop to tablet, the CF-20 can now physically detach the tablet from the keyboard, vastly increasing its mobility.Whereas the CF-19 weighed in at 5.1 lbs and the CF-20 weighs in at more than a pound lighter at 3.9 lbs, when detached from the keyboard the tablet portion weighs only 2 lbs.This makes taking the Toughbook around a job site, gathering a signature or documenting a crash site even easier while not compromising on the fully rugged nature of the unit.Another improvement comes in the way of the keyboard.CF-19 keyboards had a common complaint of having too small of keys, the CF-20 remedies this by increasing key size while not having to change the general size of the keyboard itself.Increased interface options including more USB slots and HDMI along with better docking connectivity also help make the Toughbook 20 a worthy successor to the much beloved CF-19.           For an in depth comparison between the two, please watch our CF-19 vs. CF-20 video below.If you have any questions please feel free to contact us anytime!
