    The new Toughbook 55 looks great, even has upgradable / swappable GPU module, AMD Radeon Pro WX 4150 - module slot allows for a number of upgrade options, and it's "thinner" for it's market.

    The product page doesn't have a working configurator yet, it just got announced, so keep an eye out for it to show up soon.

    It's hard to believe a laptop with a 40 hour battery life. Just love the keyboard and the colours. That's definitely going to be my next Toughbook... when I'm rich.:D

    Providing that the price is large I would take it but I need to fullfill my 25,27,28 before going to something else. The CF-5X line has really shocked me. My 52GUN has been in the rain, snow, and taken a dip in the hot tub. Still works though it’s a little dusty from hiding in the linen room with old servers and another CF-52 non touch. It is some of the best toughbooks nearing the 28,29,39,31.

    Thanks to Panasonic TOUGHBOOK for sponsoring this video! Check out the TOUGHBOOK 55 at https://lmg.gg/8KV1N
    In the world of soldered ram, pentalobe screws and glued down batteries - Panasonic is taking the complete opposite approach with the new Toughbook. They've created a laptop where nearly everything, including the GPU, can be swapped almost instantly.
