Panasonic Toughbook CF-53

The Toughbook CF-53 is a semi-rugged computer with a carry handle and metal outer shell. This is a very versatile and popular unit for applications in shop environments such as automotive & heavy equipment diagnostics. At 14.1 inches, it’s the largest touch screen capable Toughbook (optional). The unit has a footprint of 13.5 x 11 inches. There’s a number of generations of these units. They have the same external dimensions but differ internally, like many other Toughbooks. A more rugged model would be the Toughbook CF-31. A similar but 15.4 inch model without touch screen or backlit keyboard, and HDMI would be the Toughbook CF-52. These units are very popular for heavy equipment & automotive diagnostics!
