I have been working in the computer repair industry for several years now, and I am always impressed to see customers come in with computers that have nearly been beaten to death. I also love seeing customers come in with their Panasonic toughbooks without a scratch on them. Since I have been in the computer repair industry for so long, I feel that I have come to know which brands of computers are worth having and which are not worth your time, or money.
One of the greatest reasons people love buying the Panasonic toughbooks is because they have been made to take a beating. If I were in an industry where I would need to be taking my laptop into some pretty questionable locations, I would definitely take a toughbook with me. A construction site is a great example of a questionable location for a laptop. Many architects don't leave their office without their laptop, and a construction site would be the perfect place to accidentally drop a laptop and have it be ruined for good. With the use of a toughbook, I would feel much more confident taking my laptop to a construction site in order to review blueprints with the rest of my construction team.
