The Panasonic Toughbook CF-53 is designed to withstand shocks due to drops, temperature changes and water spills in demanding environments. The body is made out of magnesium alloy and incorporates built-in carry handle. The 14" widescreen LCD display has maximum brightness of 800 nit and anti-reflective coating which makes it perfect for outdoor use.

The Toughbook CF-53 is powered by a 2.7GHz Intel Core i5-3340U dual-core processor. The Turbo Boost technology allows it to run at speeds ups to 3.0GHz when applications demand it. This provides perfect balance between battery life and computing power.


The base system comes with 4GB of RAM and 320GB 5400RPM hard drive. Our tests showed that upgraded CF-53 with 8GB RAM and 250GB solid state drive (SSD) brings down operating system boot time to 15-25 seconds (down from 45-55 seconds). The RAM and SSD upgrade also greatly improves battery life and overall system performance.

The CF-53 is equipped with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. There are 2 USB 2.0 ports in the back and 2 USB 3.0 ports on the right side. A DVD burner comes standard in all configurations reading and burning CDs and DVDs including high capacity dual layer DVDs.
