Panasonic Toughbook CF-Y7 review

Price when reviewed

It’s not perfect, and it is expensive, but if you’re after the peace of mind that a rugged laptop suchy as this can provide, the CF-Y7 is a capable machine. Aside from slightly poor layout of the keyboard and ugly desing design features, it’s speedy, robust and light weight, with reasonable battery life and a decent resolution screen.
