DiscontinuedSleek and Powerful Laptop / Tablet MobilityCF-AX3

Panasonic recommends Windows.

Introducing the Panasonic Toughbook CF-AX3, replacement for the CF-AX2. A 10 finger Touchscreen PC that amazingly folds into a Touchscreen Tablet. With 12 hours of hot swappable battery life, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the Toughbook CF-AX3 was designed for the mobile professional. The Toughbook CF-AX3 can handle up to a 76cm drop thanks to its tough magnesium alloy case and shock-mounted flex-connect solid state hard drive. It can withstand 100kg of external pressure so it can survive the bangs, bumps and spills of a hectic day.

Use it anytime, whether you're out on business, on the road or in the office. Making you more efficient, its superior mobility lets you take your desk work wherever you go.
