If you are in need of an exceptionally rugged Windows 10 2-in-1 hybrid tablet to get work done in the field. Panasonic has the Toughbook lineup of rugged devices. The newest in the range — the Panasonic Toughbook 33 — is a 2-1 hybrid tablet that attaches to a keyboard. Combining powerful specs with a bulky, protective shell, the ToughBook 33 will be exclusively available for $3,649 in June, Panasonic has recently announced.
Panasonic Toughbook 33 Design
The 12-inch, 3:2 QHD display comes in a magnesium alloy shell that’s rated to withstand exceptional conditions thanks to meeting MIL-STD-810G. Panasonic notes that the anti-reflective display can just hit a 1,200 nits of peak brightness, that simply for ensuring visibility in sunlight.

On the inside, the ToughBook 33’s ruggedness is backed up by Intel’s 7th-gen Core i5 and Intel’s 7th-gen i7 processors, 16 gigabyte RAM, and up to 512 gigabyte of storage.
