If it weren't for the trademark carrying handle, you'd be hardpressed to distinguish the Toughbook 53 from an ordinary laptop. Certainly it packs a feature set to rival its high-end, non-rugged counterparts from Dell, Acer, Sony, HP and other stylish, fully-breakable brands: a super fast multi-core Intel processor, high-resolution LED display, DVD multi drive, USB 3.0, HDMI, a huge hard drive and a ton of memory. All that comes inside a military-grade, drop-tested magnesium alloy case. If you appreciate Panasonic's dedication to outstanding build quality, but want something sleeker, look no further.
