Published November 12th, 2015 - 12:33 GMT

Designed to be used in tough environments, the 3.9 pound Toughbook 20 might not be much of a looker, but it packs in a decent amount of power that includes a 6th generation Intel Core vPro processor, 128GB SSD, 8GB RAM and a choice of Windows 10 Pro or Windows 7 Professional, Neowin reported.

The Toughbook 20 offers six different usage modes that include: a traditional laptop layout, tablet mode, flipped mode (screen flipped out with keyboard attached), a carry mode (the device comes with a built-in handle), convertible mode and a vehicle mode.

In terms of ruggedness, the Toughbook 20 contains a range of features that should allow it to survive in even the most demanding situations and environments.

“The Toughbook 20 is designed to meet MIL- STD-461F for electromagentic interference and MIL-STD-810G for drop, shock, vibration, explosive atmosphere, temperature, humidity, rain and sand, as well as waterproof and dustproof ingress (IP65). The device features a magnesium alloy case, fanless design, locking port covers, raised bezel, Solid State Drive (SSD) heater and a built-in handle for ease of use, which also serves as a kickstand for desktop stability and enables use while hung.”

This isn't Panasonic's first foray into tough rugged devices, previously the company has released a 20" tablet and other touch screen laptops. The Panasonic Toughbook 20 will be available for purchase in early 2016 with a starting price of $3,099.
