Put us in an alley with Panny's new ToughBooks and chances are they'll kick our asses. And they're also packing 1000cd screens—that's 2.5 times brighter than the screen on a 30-inch cinema display by Apple!
But despite their toughness and brightness, we hold no respect for 'em. Yeah, they have shock-mounted hard drives and we know how they can withstand the rain, but they're also bulky and pack last year's technology at this year's price. Still, if that's your thing, the new CF-30 ($4,699) and the CF-19 ($4,200) both pack Intel Core Duo processors along with a whopping 512MB of RAM each.
