Panasonic finally bring its S10 Toughbook in America

Just barely six month after being made official in Japan, the Let’s Note S10 or also known as Toughbook S10 elsewhere, has finally been unveiled for the North American market.
With specs similar to the Japanese version the Toughbook S10 will come, in its basic version, with an Intel Core i5-2520M vPro, 4Gb of RAM, 320GB of HDD, a 12.1” WXGA LED backlight screen, HDMI Out, USB 3.0, DVD, SDXC… for a price around $2,449 USD.
By far not the cheapest 12.1” notebook on the market the S10 is however one of the sturdiest making it a real tool for professionals.

Secaucus, NJ, August 10, 2011 – Panasonic Solutions Company, provider of collaboration, information-sharing and decision-support solutions for government and commercial enterprises, today announced the Panasonic Toughbook® S10. Powered by an Intel® Core™ i5-2520M vPro™ processor, the Toughbook S10 delivers up to 12.5 hours of standard battery life – the longest in its class – and weighs only 3.0 pounds. The notebook offers optional Gobi2000™ mobile broadband and other enhancements to increase performance and drive return on investment. This lightweight device is ideal for road warriors and other highly mobile workers in a variety of markets.

Additional Enhancements for Improved Performance
Panasonic has designed the Toughbook S10 for the most demanding mobile users, offering exceptional battery life, connectivity, security features and performance. The Toughbook S10 also supports both USB 3.0 and 2.0, analog (VGA) and digital (HDMI) video and the latest SD card standard (SDXC) to enable faster file transfer speeds and greater flexibility. A host of security features, including an optional fingerprint reader, are available to keep your data protected and secured while on the road.

“The vast majority of business notebooks lack the durability to survive a hectic travel schedule; however, the Toughbook S10 is designed to address the needs of business professionals with the integration of security and remote management capabilities, protection against drops and spills, and exceptional performance and battery life,” said Kyp Walls, director of product management, Panasonic Solutions Company. “The Toughbook S10 provides road warriors a reliable and lightweight device that allows them to work virtually anywhere.”

Business-rugged Durability

The Toughbook S10 also features a spill-resistant keyboard that can protect against spills up to six ounces (200 cc).
