Since 1993, Panasonic has been manufacturing Toughbook line of mobile computers and has expanded the boundaries of wireless communications technology through a broad portfolio of products, ranging from fully rugged, industrial strength computers and tablet PCs to business-rugged thin-and-light and ultra-portable computers. A core manufacturer, PSC controls the entire process of design, manufacture, quality assurance, service and support. As a result, Panasonic says its Toughbook computers are known for having the lowest failure rates in the industry.
