For a convertible device meant for rugged business environments, look no further than the Panasonic Toughbook 20. It's right in the name.
Unlike most 2-in-1s, the Panasonic Toughbook 20 is certified for dust, drop and shock protection. It ships with Windows 10 Pro and sports plenty of power without needing a fan for cooling. After all, falls break fans and vents let in dust and debris. The device also has numerous mounts, casings and accessories to meet enterprise needs.
The Panasonic Toughbook 20 is purpose built for businesses that rely on highly specific legacy applications and it's very configurable. Panasonic offers options for features such as satellite GPS, a barcode scanner and a credit card reader. Even the 8-megapixel rear camera is optional, because it's a security liability for some companies.
