For professionals in fields where visual clarity and collaboration are essential, it features a brilliant and immersive 230 pixel-per-inch IPS alpha LCD touchscreen with a aspect ratio and wide viewing angles. Packaged in a 12.5 mm slim and 2.41 kg light body, the stylish, lightweight glass fiber chassis can be easily converted into desktop mode with the cradle accessory. Panasonic’s flagship rugged durability is ensured by the toughened, scratch resistant glass, which can withstand drop resistance up to 76 cm. The Windows 8.1 Pro operating system ensures high performance, security, and an intuitive touch experience, including multiple window viewing. This new range of Toughpads is priced at Rs. 2.4 Lacs.
