The Panasonic Toughbook S8 is one of six PCs released by Panasonic in 2009 as part of their new “Let’s Note” portable laptops — all of which are powered by Windows 7. It is in fact the most superior of all six, as well as an immediate upgrade from the N8. Unlike the N8, the Toughbook S8 adds along an integrated DVD burner. Like its peer, it features an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 processor (2.53GHz), up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 250GB hard-disc drive. Included also is a 12.1” WXGA screen (1366x768), HDMI/SDHC connectivity, and an Intel GM45 Express Chipset with 765MB of VRAM. Signature to the Panasonic Toughbook S8 is Panasonic’s claim that its internal battery can handle up to 16 hours of operation.

Additional Information

The six models being released are the F8, R8, W8, T8, N8, and S8. The first four are the same as previous Panasonic offerings — except that they feature Windows 7. The N8 and S8, on the other hand, are more compact and powerful.
