Toughbook 19 vs. Snowmobile 


Toughbook from Panasonic is engineered to meet the demands of doing business on the road or in the office. The biggest obstacle mobile workers face is downtime.

With Toughbook's integrated Wireless, Long Battery Life and Extremely Rugged Construction downtime is kept to an absolute minimum. Designed using stringent testing procedures to survive the challenges your mobile PC will face everyday, Toughbooks durability means more uptime and greater Return On Investment.

It all adds up to an extended working life, in any environment and condition you can throw at it, and a record-breaking low Total Cost of Ownership. Which adds up to the smartest business decision you can make.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

The purchasing decision of notebook PCs must go beyond the upfront cost of the device and into the Total Cost of Ownership taking into consideration the revenue lost due to downtime, failure rates, costs for technical support and reduced customer service.

In a case study undertaken by IDC sponsored by Panasonic - failure rates of non-Ruggedised devices were found to be 25% per annum over a four-year period compared with a failure rate of just 1.5% for Ruggedised devices.

Take just a moment and consider what costs might apply to your organisation in the event of hardware failure from a broken data-card, display or hard drive. Consider:

  • The direct hardware replacement cost. For example $1000 and more for a new display is not uncommon.
  • Any user time with IT trying to identify or resolve the problem. For example, supporting the connection of an external Bluetooth device which won't pair or trying to resolve an error message at power on of the notebook.
  • Any travel time back to the office to get a loan or replacement unit
  • The value of any lost data and the cost to recapture this data. Recapturing data may be reliant on more than one person.
  • IT time to configure a loan unit with software and repair the old unit
  • Effected customer perception if a job has to be delayed. Also consider whether this effects any organisational service level agreements or key performance measures used for contractual remuneration.

Toughbooks are physically more durable than other mobile PCs. With over 15 years of experience working with customers and analysing what components fail Panasonic has developed a mobile PC solution that will deliver truly lower TCO across its life.

Better Return on Investment

A Panasonic Toughbook may be one of the most expensive mobile PC's your organisation ever purchases but it will also be the cheapest one you will ever own. Not only does its Ruggedised technology ensure the longest service life with minimal if any downtime, but a Toughbook will also deliver time and motions savings which add up across it's operational life to deliver an even better ROI. (Return on Investment).

A Practical Example

Consider an organisation which services and maintains part of the local power lines network. Imagine a service operator has to work on a piece of equipment 50m from the side of the road where they must park their van. The technician uses their notebook to access job details, record service data and refer to technical documentation.Unfortunately on a bright sunny day the technician can't easily read the screen while outside so the notebook is left in the van where it can be more easily read. They may only need access to this information twice but that means a couple of minutes walking back to the van each time.



A Toughbook solution with its antiglare coating, polarised screen and high bright display would mean they could avoid wasting time travelling back to the van. And if it starts to rain, Toughbook's IP65 rating means they will not need to find shelter on the Toughbook's account.
If this type of scenario only occurs once every 5 jobs and only saves 4 minutes each time, across multiple technicians and a three or four year deployment this small increase in efficiency will add up to a lot of increased productivity. This productivity delivers a better customer experience and may mean more jobs can be completed in a given time. More jobs completed or a faster turnaround time for this contractor means more work that can be invoiced out or even a greater performance bonus from the client.

This is just one example of Toughbook Technology dramatically increasing the ROI on your IT investment. There are many more efficiency benefits, including carry straps, special RF antennas and world renown battery performance. See the Toughbook Technology section for more information.
