Panasonic’s Toughbook line has dependably been brutal and costly, and the CF-33 is no exemption. It is worked to take the mishandle of life out in the field that your ordinary Windows 10 versatile, even the most unequivocally fabricated portable PCs, can’t take. Panasonic’s been making Toughbooks for over 10 years, and the CF-33 is the common advancement of the brand.

How about we discuss the Toughbook CF-33 like it’s a common Windows 10 tablet for a bit. It’s running Windows 10 (or Windows 7 in the event that you pick the corporate minimization choice so it will work with old corporate applications) on top of a seventh-era Intel Core vPro i5-7300U processor with up to 16GB of RAM and up to a 512GB strong state drive (SSD). The 10-point multitouch LCD show measures 12-inches corner to corner with a fresh 2160 x 1440 determination on an agreeable 3:2 angle proportion. The screen is eye-popping splendid at 1,200nits, making it a breeze to use in even direct daylight.

That is the place the likenesses to run of the mill tablets end. The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is no common Windows tablet. It is a tough tablet, and that is clear from the principal look. There’s slenderness here, as a thin tablet is one without space to secure and pad the inward segments. The casing around the bezel is thick elastic and effectively grasped; in spite of the tablet’s 3.37 lbs. in weight, it is shockingly simple to hold. The thickness takes into consideration a few business-driven components, including a gathering of ports — with Ethernet! what’s more, VGA! — and a little Windows Ink-perfect stylus that docks into the side.
