A couple of months ago, several friends of mine introduced me to Panasonic Toughbook® – mobile computers engineered to withstand drops, spills, dust and grime, and to perform in the harshest environments. The price swayed me a bit from buying the product but I was always interested to write something about it but could not find the right angle to do it. In fact, I almost forgot completely about the Toughbook until an interesting news that I read at Mashable today brought my memory back to it.
