The battery of the CF-53 is said to give a back up of 10 hours. The device comes with a three years of warranty. The Toughbook CF-53 has been priced less than Rs. 1,00,000.

The new Toughbook series was launched at an event at the Panasonic Experience Centre in Mumbai, where the company showcased several apps and benefits of the new laptop. The company claims the new Toughbook series caters to different industry segments ranging from automotive to telecom.

Talking about the new range of Toughbook, Amos Tio, General Manager, Toughbook Asia Group, said, “The product offers its users a combination of benefits through applications, great performance, easy remote access and security without compromising on battery life. Starting from the manufacturing industry verticals, Toughbooks have expanded towards a wider audience in recent years. We are aiming at capturing more than 50 per cent market share in each target vertical in India. We currently dominate the ruggedized market, with around 67 per cent market share globally.”
