CF-54 and FZ-55 Comparison

Posted by

   The CF-54 Panasonic Toughbook was a major success in the Semi-Rugged Toughbook line and can be found everywhere from mounted in police vehicles to in a business person's carry on.  Panasonic took everything that was a success with the CF-54 and used customer feedback to improve upon the design with the successor FZ-55.  Replacing the CF-54 the FZ-55 shares many similar traits as its predecessor, while boasting some key upgrades.  In this video, The Rugged Store walks you through some of those changes!  Moving to 8th generation Intel processors, the FZ-55 by defaults doubles the CF-54 storage and RAM size (512GB SSD and 8GB RAM respectively.)  Panasonic rearranged the keyboard layout so the the FZ-55 has more often used keys enlarged and easier to strike.  With dual integrated speakers, the FZ-55 has significantly louder audio out and boasts tetra array (4) audio in microphones and an infrared low-light webcam; this will enable the FZ-55 Toughbook user to have a much better audio visual interaction with their computer.  Having the same 3 foot drop rating as the CF-54 Toughbook, the FZ-55 increases to IP53 (Ingress Protection) over the previous IP51; meaning that the FZ-55 will have more durability when it comes to liquid ingress.  One of the biggest improvements over the CF-54, the FZ-55 boasts modular xPaks enabling it to be upgraded post-factory/sale by the end user.  We will be covering the xPaks in detail in a future video!
