Product Overview

The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK 54 is a traditional, clamshell style semi-rugged laptop with a variety of integrated features and options.  Customers wanting to blend the best of both worlds between fully-rugged yet thick and heavy laptops and a traditional, non-rugged device will find the TOUGHBOOK 54 an excellent option.  It is currently the most popular and successful semi-rugged full-sized laptop on the market.


Lite vs. Prime vs. Touchscreen vs. Performance

The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK 54 essentially comes if (4) different base platforms.  It can be a little daunting to understand all of the differences, but here are the basics.

The Lite version is meant to be the least expensive, most stripped down version.  Right now, the Mk3 Lite version of the TOUGHBOOK 54 is available in just a base model and also with the addition of a DVD Drive.  No other options are currently possible on the Lite 54.  It is often a unit that is IN STOCK (but not always).  There is NO WEBCAM but an emissive keyboard is now standard.

The Prime version is a non-touchscreen unit with a normal screen resolution (the same as the Lite), but does have a webcam standard and also offers all possible upgraded features like 4G LTE, dGPS, serial, etc..  There are i5 and i7 versions.

The Touchscreen version has a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and a bright, 1000 NIT display for viewing outdoors in direct sunlight.  It also has a webcam standard and offers the full complement of possible upgrades features and options just like the Prime.  Remember, even if you don't want or need touchscreen, it is the ONLY way to achieve a brighter display for direct sunlight use.  You can essentially ignore the touchscreen feature if you don't have a need for it, but you must purchase a 54 with touchscreen if you would like to comfortably see the screen outside in the sun.

The Performance version also has a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, but drops back down to a normal brightness display, meaning it would NOT be great in direct sunlight.  This version, like the Prime and Touchscreen, also comes with a webcam standard and offers the full menu of possible upgraded features, although there are more limited SKUs.  The Performance version though is uniquely offering a higher-end graphics chip set with dedicated video RAM.  There are a few software applications that require dedicated video RAM (like a full version of autocad or perhaps Adobe Premier) in order to function properly.  The vast majority of end-users would NOT end up needed of even using this feature.  Be sure to fully understand your software requirements before purchasing your hardware.

**Please note there is a fully-loaded version of the TOUGHBOOK 54 that combines touchscreen and performance for the best of both worlds.

Shipping & Warranties

SHIPPING AND LEAD-TIMES

In general, Panasonic Toughbooks, accessories and related mounting equipment are enterprise solutions that are typically custom built to order and thus carry a lead-time of anywhere from 2-3 weeks to 2-3 months. Please be advised that online orders where expedited shipping is chosen does NOT mean that specific product is in stock and will ship right away. It simply means we will ship via the selected method when the product is available to ship. We can only confirm availability over the phone or online chat. While we do our best to have a wide variety of Toughbook models and accessories in stock, this particular supply chain is challenging and we ask that customers please confirm availability with us on the phone when time is a priority. Additionally, expedited shipping will not apply to multiple items that might have multiple lead-times and ship dates. It is typically applying to the main item of an order. Again, please call us ASAP at 877-532-8088 to discuss urgent needs and expedited shipping.

RETURNS

Due to restrictions set by the manufacturer and their distributors, Panasonic Toughbook computers and accessories cannot be returned. Customers should refuse delivery of any visibly damaged packages. Any non-visible damage must be reported immediately to MooringTech.com. Defective or malfunctioning units must be handled directly with Panasonic at 1-800-LAPTOP5 (800-527-867). Potential exceptions to this return policy can only be arranged prior to purchasing product and only with the explicit consent of a sales representative who is firmly aware of all extenuating circumstances. Returns will not be accepted by MooringTech.com without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA). Returned items lacking an RMA will be refused or sent back to the customer at the customer’s expense. Shipping and handling charges are always non-refundable. Please contact us at 877-532-8088 with any questions or concerns regarding this return policy.

STANDARD WARRANTY

All new Panasonic Toughbooks sourced from authorized dealers are protected from manufacturing defects for three years. The standard warranty includes a priority parts exchange program and repair service at no cost with overnight shipping to and from Panasonic included. Panasonic’s standard warranty (often referred to as “Toughbook Preferred”) also includes lifetime technical support directly with Panasonic at 1-800-LAPTOP-5. In addition, Toughbook end-users have online access to drivers, first-aid disks, BIOS updates, tools, utilities and manuals.  Panasonic's Standard Manufacturer's Warranty does NOT cover accidental damage of any kind.

ORIGINAL BATTERY WARRANTY

All new batteries, whether included in the original Toughbook purchase or acquired as an accessory after the fact, are covered under warranty for one (1) year from date of purchase. Replacement batteries supplied to a customer under warranty are only covered through the end-date of the original purchase.

EXTENDED WARRANTY

Extends original standard warranty (minus the battery) through 4 or 5 years.

PROTECTION PLUS

While the standard warranty covers anything that happens to your Toughbook under normal operations (meaning manufacturer’s defects), it does NOT cover accidental damage of any kind. It is a common misconception that MIL-STD rated laptops like a Toughbook are warrantied for damage within a parameter like a 6ft drop. Meaning if you drop your Toughbook from 3 feet and it breaks then it is covered by the standard warranty. This is NOT correct. It is impossible for Panasonic to know if it were 3 inches or 3 stories. The only way to be covered from accidental damage is to purchase a Protection Plus or Ultimate Care warranty upgrade. Protection Plus covers one major component failure per year and is limited to one complete device replacement during the warranty period.

ULTIMATE CARE

Ultimate Care is essentially unlimited Protection Plus. This means Panasonic will fix or replace your Toughbook an unlimited number of times within the upgraded warranty period. It does not apply in the case of natural disasters (think hurricane or fire) as well as theft/lose and intentional damage (you as the customer trying to upgrade an internal component when you shouldn’t).

ONSITE SERVICE

This upgrade stands alone and is applied to any warranty or upgraded warranty you have on a Toughbook. Meaning if you have Ultimate Care, it also will now be on-site with Panasonic’s onsite upgrade. Panasonic will send out a Panasonic-certified technician to your door to perform repairs onsite.
