Why should you purchase a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook?

Posted by alisonreid29 on October 23rd, 2014

Panasonic is not necessarily among the most popular brands of laptops, but there is at least one which has truly made waves on the market: the Toughbook. This Panasonic laptop is especially known for its resistance to weather, dust, drops of water, all in all, or its toughness – hence the name. Here are several reasons why you should choose this model, especially if you are planning to buy an already used one.

                The Toughbook was released by Panasonic several years ago, more exactly in 1997. Of course, many new models have appeared along the years and the most recent one – released in 2014 – has all the important features of the latest generations of laptops. With an Intel Core i5 processor and a QM77 graphics processing unit, this Panasonic laptop is fast, efficient, and displays truly high-quality images. Its resistance is simply incredible: the screen is toughened with an alkali-aluminosilicate sheet and it is designed to remain undamaged if you spill the content of a glass of more than 150 milliliters on it, which would be a coffee cup or a champagne flute, for instance. The main disadvantages would be, of course, its price, as it costs more than 5000 dollars. However, you can easily find a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook from 2006 or 2007, models which are quite similar in terms of quality and almost as efficient and in which you will invest less than 1000 Australian dollars.

                A refurbished Panasonic Toughbook is a far better choice than a brand new one especially if you are not a professional computer user. As long as you have no reason to install the most advanced programs dedicated to photo and music editing, web hosting or other similar domains, in which case you would need more than 6GB of Random-Access Memory and 4Ghz processor, a second-hand Toughbook CF-18 with 1.5GB RAM and 1.2 Ghz processor or a CF-30 with 3Gb RAM and a 1.66 processor will meet your requirements. Moreover, since all models of Toughbooks are designed to be very resistant, you will not have many problems finding a used Panasonic laptop maintained in the finest conditions. The battery, for instance, is usually one of the first components that get deteriorated in time, but the battery life of a Toughbook is above average, which means you will most probably enjoy it for quite a long time even if it has already been used for several years.

                There are only a couple of aspects to which you should pay attention before purchasing a refurbished Panasonic Toughbook. First of all, make sure that you are offered reasonable warranty. If you have the mischance of buying a damaged product, you should be able to return it and get your money back or receive a different Panasonic laptop in at least a month. Although they are much cheaper, buying a used laptop is still quite an investment and you probably don’t want to lose your savings on a nonfunctional screen. From a different point of view, you should check if you are going to receive the necessary software along with the computer. Operating systems can be quite expensive and you don’t want to get a perfectly working laptop and not be able to use it because you don’t have the programs either. Normally, such aspects should be taken care of by the seller, but precaution can never do harm.
